They have done it again

Ceranchia appolina male and female
Ceranchia appolina male and female

Latest news in from the field - a CPALI/SEPALI farmer found Ceranchia appolina, a beautiful Malagasy silk moth that we have been searching for far and wide. One of our farmers found it in his back yard and identified the native host plant!  The cocoon is gorgeous and can easily be spun - looks like after a little additional research we may be raising a new species - and by the way the moth is spectacular.  I have attached a pictureof the male and female.

Also attached is the September newsletter dedicated to our new women's groups.  We are really excited that some of the women have convinced their husbands to join the silk production team and husbands are convincing their wives to sign up for product finishing.

Finally I will be visiting in October and looking forward to seeing up close and personal the 250 trees planted by the 60+ farmers who participated in the t-shirt competition - will let you know the new team t-shirt design.

 

All the best,

Cay
