Jersey tigers doing well, as are all other larvae hibernators (Dark tussock, yellow tail, foxmoth, and ruby tigers). All pupae fine (except for the few crippled ones of course - a dark dagger, an emperor, and a couple of buff tips), and hibernating eggs fine (Vapourer, bordered beauty, and December moth)
1 buff tip caterpillar left to pupate, all others have gone wrong, either crippled, or, in one case, gone splat on the floor). Let's hope this one goes fine, but he is taking his time about it. It will be my last chance of keeping my French buff tip line going.
Am expecting the Oleander hawks and Atlas moth pupae to come anytime soon.
Merry Christmas, and a Happy new year.
