Abstract:

"The senior author carried out a third entomological expedition to Ambon Island, Moluccas, Indonesia in July 2017. First expedition in July / August 1997, cf. Paukstadt & Naumann (1996) and second expedition in 2015, cf. U. & L. H. Paukstadt (2015a, b, c). Important results of the third expedition were already published to make them available, cf. U. & L. H. Paukstadt (2017). A further early visit has been in January 1975. This paper is dealing with an entomological travel report. Besides the discovery of two further primary foodplants for the larvae of Attacus crameri C. FELDER in von Frauenfeld, 1861 (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae) observations on the biology and ecology of this species were recorded. Ambon was visited during the trade winds. That means that it was raining cats and dogs day and night during the expedition. Difficulties the author encountered due to the weather conditions are reported herein."
