  1. Hi,

    I am a private breeder from portugal, and im trying to collect some info about tropical pupae emergence i have been breeding some tropical butterflies here but i always have some problems with pupaes, you might know how to help me =)

  2. Hi there. You could do no better than to look up the International Association of Butterfly Exhibitors and Suppliers (IABES). It is a professional group for butterfly people, and much of the conversation is about rearing and improving the health of pupae. You can find their website by searching for IABES and the word butterfly.
