Fresh Sheet – October 22, 2010

This week’s shipment is a confirmation that the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) reads our paperwork. The USDA detected a species that is not on our permit. They could have destroyed or turned back the entire shipment. Instead, they identified and remove the illegal species and sent the remaining pupae on to us.


55 - Papilio palinurus (Banded Peacock)
98 - Papilio rumanzovia (Crimson Swallowtail)
09- Papilio lowii (Sunset Swallowtail)
98- Idea leuconoe (Paper Kite)
40 - Pachliopta kotzeboea (Pink Rose)
29 - Graphium agamemnon (Tailed Jay)
17 - Doleschalia bisaltide (Autumn Leaf)
20 - Parthenos sylvia philippensis (The Clipper)
19 - Cethosia biblis (Red Lacewing)
25 - Hypolimnas bolina (Great Eggfly)

Total = 410
