Antherea

ANTHEREA
Several commercial varieties of wild silks are obtained from the silkworms as under. These worms do not feed on mulberry leaves, and because of this fact are called wild silks: - Antherea Yama-Mai - A native of Japan which feeds on oak leaves. The caterpillar is green-coloured - its cocoon is large and bright green. The fibre is not so readily dyed and bleached as Bombax mori. Antherea Pernyi - A native of China, feeding on oak leaves. The cocoon is large and of a yellow to brown colour. Antherea Assama - A native of India, giving a large cocoon. Antherea Mylitta - A native of India (see Antherea Silk)
