Dear visitor, I, Bart Coppens, the owner of this website, would like to welcome to you to Breedingbutterflies.com. This website is focussed on breeding Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) in captivity and is based on my personal experience and observations alone. I am an amateur entomologist from the Netherlands that mainly studies the faunistics, ecology and life cycles of various Lepidoptera. I have a lot of experience with breeding them in captivity – in peak years I have bred over 40 moth species in a single season. It is my goal to document and publish as much information about them as possible during my lifetime.
On this website you will find various links to caresheets that document the methods I have used to reproduce certain species in captivity; this enables my readers to do the same thing. It also contains some general advice and information about how to get started and what equipment to use, some of my personal opinions and notes and information about me as a person (it is my personal website), links to my other social media platforms and research and more.
All the images, text and information on this website are mine, unless stated otherwise.
For more information about this website and it’s future goals please read about this website.
For more information about me (Bart Coppens), the owner, please read the FAQ + about me
For more information about future updates, please read the TO DO LIST that contains planned content and upgrades that will be released over time
