Rearing archives

Click here to consider contributing to this list!

Welcome to the rearing archives, a community based faunistic project. This page lists the life history of several Lepidoptera species, recorded in the wild or in captivity. It harnesses the power of social media and hobbyists, in order to  record biodiversity and share the important findings of hobbyists to the whole world.

Have you reared a unusual species of butterfly or moth? Would you like to publish your results, but do you lack the time or knowledge to write scientific publications? Then email your data to me, and your observations will be documented in these archives. I will consider adding it,  if it meets my requirements.

Of course, you will be credited with your full name for the rearing and discoveries you made.

Me, being the site owner (Bart Coppens) would like to document as much as possible about the life cycle and ecology of moths – with a heavy focus on studying them in captivity. While I do my best to breed as many as possible of them myself, my work pales in comparision to the thousands of hobbyists and naturalists that devote their time to rear and study these creature. Harnessing the power of social media and citizen science, I aim to add the unique obervations of as many people as possible.
