Dr. Usha and I saw Terminalia arjuna tree in Charkop, Mumbai in the month of June 2010.
Marathi name: अर्जुन
Family : Combretaceae
T. arjuna is a food plant of Tussar Silk moth. I have attached a pic of a cocoon of T.Silk moth.
It is very difficult to rear this moth in captivity. I tried to rear it twice but the moth did not emerge from it, instead it was parasitised.Cheers,
