Pacific Green Sphinx Moth Resin Earrings -- Proserpinus lucidus

A very interesting early season sphinx moth.  These fly in March in the Columbia Basin, many times when there is still snow on the ground.

We collect them each year as the first species of the season.  It's hard to not call them a Valentine's Day Moth, with the little hearts on the wings...and they sometimes are flying at that time.

Larvae feed on evening primrose family plants, and pupate underground.

Item Details:

  • Whole moth only.  If just forewing or hindwing is preferred, let us know.
  • Wings have a gorgeous epoxy resin finish on each side.
  • Very lightweight.
  • For earrings, choose .925 Sterling Silver or hypoallergenic niobium earwires.  Niobium is less shiny and contains no nickel.  See picture.
  • Made for you item.  May take a week or so from order to shipping.
