Bart’s dream species

My Dream Species: WANTED!

Here are some species that I would love to breed most. Unfortunately most of them are very rare and will be unobtainable in the hobby, or are obtainable but hard or impossible to breed due to their host plants being unavailable or unrecorded. So it is quite the wish list of a snob. But you never know.

 Contact me if you can find any eggs or cocoons, I will trade you my soul for them 🙂 

If I ever happen to breed any of the species on this list, I will cross them off! Just getting eggs/cocoons does not count, it needs to be a succesful rearing atleast.
