Quercus, Willow, Fagus, Robinia
Very beautifull species. They like humid conditions. After the  
caterpillars emerge they should be kept in small containers. Until 3rd  
instar they could be kept in close containers, and from L4 on they can  
be reared in open cages. They spin a paperthin cocoon. The second  
generation can be overwintered. Pairing should be easy, and eggs got  
a black dot when fertile.
