Species caresheets

Caresheets are the main feature of my website – and the main reason people come here. I am a reasonably experienced insect breeder that has reproduced a lot of Lepidoptera in captivity. If I am really confident enough to give advice about a species in particular, I will use this information to compile a caresheet.

Caresheets by family: Interested in breeding a particular family of moths in captivity? Navigate and find the species you are interested in by selecting the Lepidoptera families you are looking for.

Full species list:  Alphabetic list of all species featured on this website, regardless of their taxonomy. A rather unsightly list, but useful if you do not know what you are looking for, or what family the species are you are interested in belong to.

User submitted caresheets (rearing archives): Hey, you. You can write caresheets too, did you know that? I just use a different section for user submitted content and keep it apart from mine. Did you raise or breed a unusual species? Do you want to showcase it to the world? Contact me and your content will be added.

Coming soon: Missing anything? You could be right. While I have bred and raised a large amount of species in captivity, I barely have the time to keep up and write caresheets abouts all of them. Next to this website I am occupied with work, studies, several other websites, a YouTube channel, research.. you name it. Eventually they will come.
