White Lined Sphinx are lovely hummingbird moths, common throughout the lower 48 states and the Pacific Northwest.  Typically active at dusk nectaring on various flowers, we also see these flying during the day throughout the Columbia Basin. When they hold still long enough, the distinctive pink coloring on their hindwings is gorgeous. (It's pretty as a fast-moving blur, too.) 

Item Details:

  • You will receive one or two live White Lined Sphinx pupae (add more by changing the quantity in shopping cart)
  • Pupae will be verified live and healthy before shipment.
  • Pupae are NOT DIAPAUSING.  They will eclose (hatch) in summer.
  • Packed like royalty and carefully shipped in a thermally insulated box.

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

  • Lay the pupae on paper towel in a pop-up tent.
  • Mist TWICE DAILY.  This species usually pupates underground, so the extra moisture is important.
  • Pupae will begin to show signs of wing color and pattern as they get close to eclosion.
  • Release within 24 hours of eclosion (hatching)
