My father, Don Oehlke, introduced me to the world of butterflies and moths while living in Roselle, New Jersey, back in the 1950's.

Currently (May 31, 2015) I am a retired school teacher/administrator who rears and sells eggs and cocoons/pupae of some North American Saturniidae, Sphingidae, Catocala or butterflies.

Although I reside in Canada and sell locally indigenous livestock to Canadian customers, I maintain many contacts with breeders in the United States who rear and distribute livestock of US species to US destinations for me.

You can visit my pricelists for Canada and the United States and overseas via the links from Saturniidae of Prince Edward Island.

I have designed and continue to design thousands of webpages providing information about lepidoptera. You can visit some of those pages via the links at
Visit North American Catocala: Underwing Moths of Canada and the United States.
Visit Sphingidae of the Americas: Country by Country checklists of Sphingidae from North, Central and South America. For the US there are state by state checklists and even county by county checklists. For Canada there are province by province checklists.
Visit Saturniidae of Prince Edward Island.

I have also created many websites for photographers with a keen interest in lepidoptera. You can visit those sites via the links at
Visit Kirby Wolfe Saturniidae Collection
Visit Leroy Simon Saturniidae Collection
Visit Thibaud Decaens Saturniidae Collection
Visit Tim Dyson Night Vision Photography: Ontario Catocala

I also designed and maintain small websites about Prince Edward Island butterflies, Saturniidae, Sphingidae and Catocala which are linked from Saturniidae of Prince Edward Island.

I also maintain two very large private/membership only websites whose ad pages are at
1) World's Largest Saturniidae Site; over 1550 different worldwide Saturniidae species depicted with checklists for all countries of the world with Saturniidae populations. Lots of rearing information, foodplants, ranges, with files for just about all of the world's known Saturniidae. Members get discounts of approximately 10% on most livestock and supplies, i.e, rearing sleeves.

2) Caterpillars Too!: A canadian/United States butterfly website that will help you identify local butterflies and their caterpillars.

I accept payment in form of personal checks, international money orders, cashier's checks or Paypal. Always get an email confirmation of your order availability from me before sending a payment. If you are using Paypal there is usually a 4% Paypal transaction fee that would be added to your order, and you can use the Paypal button below.

Please also send me a separate personal email when using the Paypal button so I know what payment if for and have ease of communicating with you.
