On the nights of the 19th and 20th October she laid 108 eggs. Most of these hatched 14 days later on the 2nd and 3rd of November. I had hoped to get a shot of them hatching but they seemed to do so overnight. Whether this is normal for them or just coincidence I cannot say. Certainly I've had eggs of many other species which have hatched during the day.
I've been feeding them on Eucalyptus pauciflora which is not a local species. At this stage they have shown a strong preference for young leaves.
The last time I tried to rear these I only got them to second instar before they succumbed to a fungal attack. This time I've put them in a larger rearing cage with better ventilation so hopefully I'll be successful this time round.
