Available again in Summer 2021

****SHIPPING to ALL 50 States.  USDA permits not required for this species.

A lovely hummingbird moth, common throughout the lower 48 states and the Pacific Northwest.  Typically seen at dusk nectaring on various flowers, we also see these flying during the day throughout the Columbia Basin.

Item Details:

  • You will receive one live White Lined Sphinx pupae
  • Pupae will be verified live and healthy before shipment.
  • Pupae is diapausing (sleeping through the winter for eclosion in SPRING 2021)  
  • Packed like royalty in cotton roll, and carefully shipped to you.

General Directions.  These are pretty easy to hatch and release, but some details are helpful:

  • Please refer to our overwintering blog post: https://sagebrushbutterflies.com/blogs/news/overwintering
  • Because warmth can break diapause of this species, we recommend placing pupae directly into cold storage on arrival, hence the late November shipping time.
  • We will do our best to reply to questions as time permits.  Please be patient, as we're busy rearing large quantities of hungry caterpillars all season, and sometimes will be out collecting for days at a time too.
