Worldwide Butterflies has been supplying butterflies and moths for half a century. There is a range of species available as livestock. Schools can see Recommended School Species.

Butterflies and moths are supplied for historic, scientific and identification collections, medical research, for photography and conservation, and even just for their incredible beauty and natural history interest.

Schools and educational establishments are prominent in Worldwide Butterflies’ list of customers. A number people started by buying from Worldwide Butterflies, and have gone on to become professional in Entomology and Natural History in a number of ways. In fact in fact this has now continued in subsequent generations. To read about Worldwide Butterflies from the earliest days please see History.

Welcome to the WWB Website

If you wish to edit your order, click on Shopping Cart where you can change the quantities or remove an item. It is essential to click the blue circular arrow ikon after making a change on an item, which updates the calculations.

Then proceed to Checkout.

If your order is not going through at checkout, you are then with PayPal, not on the WWB website, it sometimes helps to try an alternative valid card, otherwise, you can select to pay by PayPal instead of a card.

Login to My Account  to follow availability of booked items. You can see your order history, Store Credits and check on dispatch. Booked species may have an update note. If none please check the species text on the website to see the current availability.



Have you received the latest WWB NEWS? To receive WWB NEWS by email in future, please go to your Account and click NEWS Subscribe. It's free. You will be notified about current and coming species, special offers and more.

Some items on the website pages have multiple pictures which show when you click the main picure. If you hover the cursor over a picture, arrows appear left or right so you can scroll through the pictures enlarged.

LIVING BUTTERFLIES and MOTHS. For film shoots, weddings and other events we are sometimes asked for butterflies to release. Foreign species cannot be used for this and we don't supply living adults. You can buy pupae but not to a specific date, so you need to organise the synchronisation of emergence for the particular requirement.





Customers sometimes expect their orders to arrive next day. Please take into account the anticipated season shown for each item and the fact that several items may be sent from different sources, often from another country. Post is often slower in holiday periods, especially overseas.





Please check availability on this website and, on YOUR ACCOUNT to see if there is a note against your booked item. If you do enquire, please quote not only the order NUMBER and your NAME but also the SPECIES.


Availability: NOW means can be dispatched immediately or within a few days. If a month or season is stated, and we are in that period, it does not mean that the item is available immediately. We have to wait for the species to become available. The availability period shown is when that item normally becomes available. Eg  If it is June and a species is listed as June, it does not mean it is ready to send yet: it might be late June. When that species is actually ready to send, the availability will change to NOW and booked items are dispatched in date order.


International orders for livestock that would take too long in the post, are delivered in Europe by express courier, usually arriving next day after dispatch. Courier delivery almost eliminates the risk in transit and is the only shipping option for most non-dormant livestock. 

Outside Europe only dormant pupae and eggs can be posted. Courier delivery outside Europe is only by individual arrangement and is not generally available.




Historic specimens and Aberrations are now on the WWB website Click here to see set specimens of Coppers

The cost of postage and packing was not only reduced last season but is not increased with the new, higher postal rates.  New packaging is being used, that reduces weight and size, so the charge for posting livestock in the UK and overseas was reduced by about 25% and continues to be held down this year.  






on selected livestock right now.

This is also a chance to stock up on NETTING, SLEEVES, CAGES, Osier Cuttings,

Plastic Rearing containers, 

and, briefly, £50 off the MOONLANDER MOTH TRAP with Goodden GEMLIGHT.


Some reductions are temporary. Don't miss the opportunities!

Prices of Plastic Rearing Containers are set to rise very shortly.


JUST ARRIVED! Pupae the giant OWL BUTTERFLY Caligo atreus. This species has wonderful patches of iridescent blue, with orange, on a dark background. The underside has the characteristic Owl markings. This is very special. Not usually available. Don't miss these!


The Belted Beauty Moth Lycia zonaria is a species that is extremely rare in Britain, found sparsely in about three shore locations in the north of Britain, and in parts of central Europe. Never before listed by WWB, there are pupae immediately available. The moths emerge early in spring. The female is fat, furry and wingless! Click on the species to see the larva and the range of food plants easily provided.


CHINESE MOON MOTH Actias sinensia Eggs have all sold but can be ordered for delivery in spring/summer. Larvae easily reared in winter on Eucalyptus. Male and female moth two distinct colours. The cocoons are an unusual shining green, and slightly netted. Seldom available.


GIANT ATLAS MOTH COCOONS are immediately available. These are from Northern Thailand where they are dormant in winter. NOW is the time to buy them to store cool until spring. These are of good size and highly recommended.


PUPAE of the nominate subspecies Papillo machaon machaon. Pupae are immediately available. This race is not P. m. gorganus which is found across Europe.  In fact there are greater similarities with the English Swallowtail Papilio machaon britannicus. Click on to this species in the featured section, to learn more and see pictures. This is a very special geographical race and our breeder will retire this year, so these are likely to be the last pupae for years to come.


A HAWKMOTH NEW TO OUR LISTS: Ampelophaga rubiginosa from Far Eastern Russia. Some pupae are immediately available and eggs can be ordered now for supply in summer. The attractive larvae feed on vines and creepers. Other food plants are possible. They change with each instar and the final change has both green and brown patterned forms. Click on the species to see the streamlined larvae.


THE SEA BUCKTHORN HAWK Hyles hippophaes is seldom available. Hawkmoth specialists will appreciate this species. It feeds on Sea Buckthorn Hippophae rhamnoides and may well take Willowherb and Eleagnus. Pupae immediately available.

WINTER PUPAE THAT WILL EMERGE SHORTLY: See Oleander Hawk nerii. They will produce adult moths in a couple of weeks or so in incubation, or you can store them cool to breed in late winter or early spring. Other species to hatch out in winter include Madagascan Silkmoths Tagoropsis leporina and Ceranchia apollina.

Cinnabar Moth Hipocrita jacobaeae, once very common indeed, has become so scarce over the last ten years that it was approaching extinction. The summer of 2016 brought about a complete reversal and numbers were almost back to the old levels. Pupae are never available in sufficient numbers to offer for sale but we bred a number and have enough to sell some. They are immediately available. 

Moth breeders can also try their hand at the Small Eggar lanestris whose nut-like cocoons produce moths in early spring. A very interesting species in all stages. Cocoons are immediately available and the price is lower than before!


THE SQUEAKING SILKMOTH Rhodinia fugax from the Far East is one of the most fascinating you can rear. Store the eggs cold for the winter, to hatch in spring. The larvae have a curious two tone colouring. When larger they squeak audibly when disturbed. An even greater treat is in store when they spin their extraordinary cocoons! Supplies are limited.

A Silkmoth completely new to WWB!  Coloradia doris is a medium to small species, patterned in soft greys and pink. It occurs in the south and west of North America, in a restricted area. The larvae cluster in small groups on Pines. Later they spread out and live more on their own. They look more like the larvae of a Nymphalid than a Saturniid. See the pictures. Eggs can be ordered in advance for delivery in season in the coming season. Very few breeder have tried this species. A chance of new experiences for the connoisseur and lots of photographic opportunities!

Agapema homogena is another lesser-known Saturniid which did very well for WWB last summer. We have a breeding stock again and eggs can be ordered now for supply in summer. The moths emerge in the afternoon, pair in late evening. At night eggs are laid in groups on the cage netting. The larvae are gregarious at first. The winter cocoons are spun amongst vegetation on the ground.

Rothschildia orizaba eggs from South America are being offered now for supply in early summer. This species is seldom available. The moth resembles a miniature Atlas Moth. The larvae feed on Privet and become fat and green with purple and white between the segments. They will produce moths in the same year if kept humid and warm.

From Italy we have received superb and large wild cocoons of the European Ailanthus Moth Philosamia cynthia walkeri. These are particularly fine and recommended. It is one of Europe’s largest moths, and the larvae are easy to rear on Ailanthus, Privet and a number of other foodplants. 

HICKORY HORNED DEVIL Citheronia regalis eggs will again be available in the coming season, after absence for some years. They are very popular indeed, so please book early. This is a very grand silk moth, with larvae that are so fearsome that, once reared, they will never be forgotten. The moths are magnificent, and quite unlike most other Saturniid species. 

Tagoropsis leporina pupae from Madagascar, like other African Saturniids, has underground pupae but is a Silkmoth. This is another first for WWB. We have supplied pre-booked orders and have a few spare for sale. If you have not experienced this species, and not many breeders have, why not get some pupae and try them?

Ceranchia apollina, also from Madagascar, is unusually coloured white, with attractive eyespots and patterning. The cocoons are magnificent: straw coloured and surprisingly reminiscent of miniature mittrei cocoons!

MADAGASCAN MOON MOTH Argema mittrei has the largest cocoon of all moths. It is silvery white and peppered with little holes - totally unique. Like so many other wonderful species in Madagascar, this moth is extraordinarily large and exceptional. Keep the cocoons very moist and at about 30º and you will witness the experience of a lifetime!

MADAGASCAN EMPEROR Antherina suraka. This species deserves to be better known. The moth is highly colourful. Breeding is exceptionally easy. The larvae feed on Privet and a number of alternative foodplants. As they grow, they develop differing colours and patterns at random, in a way that we have never seen in any other species! Cocoons are ready immediately: they can be held cool or incubated as you wish. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

PEACOCK BUTTERFLY Inachis io pupae are available now. This species, together with the Small Tortoiseshell urticae suffered huge losses last winter when the hibernating adults woke early and died of starvation. Could you help to boost the Peacock population in your area?

There are two Underwing species Catocala that we have never had before. These are overwintering eggs, received from Russia and from Croatia. See these amongst the featured species. We also have available Red and Blue Underwing nupta and fraxini, Crimson and Rosy Underwings sponsa and electa.

Supplies from North America have arrived.  There are cocoons of the American Oak Silkmoth polyphemus, American Moon Moth luna,  and there are pupae of three most popular species of Swallowtail, asterias, troilus and glaucus.  

Just received very large and superb quality Privet Hawk ligustri pupae. These are ideal for breeding next season, and we highly recommend them. There are also pupae of Small Elephant Hawk porcellus - a really delightful species and one of the brightest colours of all the Hawks. There is a limited stock of the Willowherb Hawk proserpina. A very attractive moth patterned in greens, with contrasting hellow hindwings. The larvae thrive on Rosebay Willowherb.

Emperor Moth pavonia cocoons are nearly all sold.  More will arrive soon. Also its cousins the Giant Peacock Moth pyri and pavoniella. All three species emerge and breed in the spring.

MORE EUROPEAN PUPAE are arriving this month. It is a good idea to look at the species you would like to breed next year and order breeding stock pupae early, while still available.

Immediately available are winter eggs of two choice Hairstreaks, the Brown betulae and Black Hairstreak pruni. Store cool and in natural winter conditions until they hatch in spring. Also eggs of the scarce High Brown Fritillary adippe and larvae of the Dark Green Fritillary aglaia. The larvae of both Fritillaries feed on Violet leaves. Now is the time to buy larvae of the Marbled White galathea which can be kept sleeved on potted coarse grass.

Overwintering pupae of the Chequered Blue orion are available immediately. Store cool until spring, when they breed on Sedum. Orion is not always available and few breeders have experience of the species. Why not try some yourself?

There are some GOOD REDUCTIONS on certain livestock and other items. See the MARKET STALL for details.

SLEEVES for rearing larvae are on temporary SPECIAL OFFER at the moment.

Please click here to see the reductions.

The WWB website offers classic species such as the English and European Swallowtails, Atlas Moth, Deathshead atropos and Oleander Hawkmoths nerii, Purple Emperor iris, Spanish Moon Moth isabellae and many more. Availability of some of these has already started. They are popular, so the earlier you book, the higher on the list your order will be.

RIGHT INTO AUTUMN conditions for moth trapping were good.  Colder nights are now reducing catches, but they have been good in the past year, and now some of the warmer winter nights have been quite productive. The MOONLANDER with Goodden GEMLIGHT works in the field, in places where there is no electricity. It is the most compact and lightweight trap in the world. The GemLight runs all night on 8 AA batteries. This compares with a typical battery the size and weight of a brick! Take a trap on holiday it occupies little space in a suitcase and is only the weight of a camera. There is always space in a car, caravan or boat, because it is so compact.  

Have you ever used a sleeve with a zip side opening? This is a new WWB innovation, as is the use of velcro ties for sleeve ends. Have a look at the sleeve section. Once you use a Zip Sleeve you won't want to go back to the traditional sleeve with no side access. A small extra cost for a huge benefit!

THERE ARE SPECIAL PROMOTIONAL PRICES on the Lepidoptera Rearing Outfit, Mini Silk Farm.  See the MARKET STALL for details. There can also be found some good reductions on pupae and cocoons. Don't delay: many of the reductions are for a short time or for a limited amount of stock.

PYJAMA CAGES are designed for the practical breeder who needs to be able to clean and renovate cages thoroughly and rapidly. They are proof against most parasites and the most escape-proof, for active larvae, of any design we have used. Eggs laid on the sides of the cage are dealt collected or sleeved with the minimum of time and effort. Pyjama cages are easily stored flat for the winter and quickly re-assembled in spring.

A new size of plastic rearing container has been introduced. The Size 8 comes in packs of 6. It is deeper than the flat Size 7, which allows more space for larvae and foodplant, without being so large that larvae stray off the food. This is very important when establishing young larvae. Buy a pack, and we think you will want to have some more!

The POP-UP CAGE is back!  See the CAGE Section.

SEE the MARKET STALL section for special offers and some big savings (Click on the menu top left of the screen). Watch this section for further offers. Other reductions include cages, the Lepidopterist's Rearing Outfit and the Mini Silk Farm, ALL AT SPECIAL PRICES!

BEGINNER? If you have not reared butterflies and moths before, please take note of the foodplants your larvae will need. To know how to keep caterpillars, hatch out pupae and care for your livestock we recommend the handbook The All Colour Paperback BUTTERFLIES which is on the Schools Page and in the Book Section. It is packed with information and will help you a great deal.



If you are a beginner and need information on rearing from small caterpillars, or hatching out pupae, please order the book shown above. INSTRUCTIONS ARE NOT SENT WITH EACH SPECIES, you need to acquire basic skills and this book is a simple way to learn them.

LIVESTOCK ON OUR WEBSITE  is very wide-ranging. Please scroll down the different sections. There are some very interesting species for the connoisseur and for the beginner.


ON YOUR ACCOUNT please enter dates when you cannot receive livestock. Letting us know by any other means will not apply the dates to the system and will not prevent dispatch of orders when you cannot receive them.



We will email you: just go to My Account and click to receive these.


Newly hatched or small larvae are too small to be put into a cage or aquarium. If you can put them on growing foodplant, protected with a sleeve, that is ideal. Alternatively keep in a plastic box, lined with absorbent paper, in close confinement with fresh foodplant, and changed daily. Fuller hints on the page for Plastic Rearing Containers. For illustrated instructios see the All Colour Paperback BUTTERFLIES.
