Eggs used 4-5 days to hatch
Larval stage lasted 22 days, molting 3 times
Pupa used 14-16 days to hatch after being taken out of hibernation.
Difficulty rating based on % of individuals gotten through to imago(1=hard, 5=easy): 4/5
More high res pictures over HERE
I was wondering if at the end of each species summary you could give us a "species success" rating based on a 1 to 5 scale; with five being high success and 1 being almost "nil" success.
That would give a good indication to anyone attempting to perhaps raise any of these the difficulty level in achieving adults.
Here in the US the morning cloak and red admiral are prevalent so they could be raised here unlike some of the others you have shown.
Such a rating will be very subjective and alot of variables can be taken into account. But i'll try and add a rating based only on % of individuals i got through to imago.
