7 June 2011 – Egg Blog

How many?  85 seems to be about right. Laid with the precision of a machine-gun but on the outside of the moth cage not on the inside.  I thought the White Ermine or the Green Silver-lines might have been responsible but they didn’t make contact with the outside of the mesh.  The last clutch of eggs deposited on an eggbox were those of a Pebble Prominent (and they grew and pupated and hatched) but it will have to be trial and error with this bundle.  When they hatch they will be shepherded (hopefully) into a breeding cage and photographs will be taken.  If anyone can identify the species, please make contact.
