Following on from recent posts: I am very pleased to report that to my knowledge the pictured specimen is the first, 4th consecutive generation (i.e without diapause) adult Apatura ilia specimen that has EVER been produced. And what a beauty he is. This species has now been continually in active culture since 15.04.15, meaning that this 4th generation specimen has elcosed just 9 days short of a full calendar year. I think it is safe to say that this species can therefore to cultured year round, if conditions are significantly optimised. I also have another 6 females to follow (all in the ideal window of about 7 days delay), so will soon hopefully be aiming for generation 5!
