The offspring of Coscinaraea monile are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Coscinaraea monile, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Coscinaraea monile, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
