In invertebrates, the horseshoe crab Limulus polyphemus has two paralogs for cycle and three gene copies for period (Chesmore et al, 2016); and the silk moth Antheraea pernyi
has two paralogs for period, located on different sex chromosomes (Gotter et al, 1999).
Caption: Shown here is an Antheraea pernyi
(AP) silk spinner.
If we can work to find a solution, such as the use of Antheraea pernyi
(AP) silk, to improve their quality of life even slightly then it is beneficial.

These findings corroborate those of sperm activation in other insects, i.e., sperm became active after 2 min in the bedbug, Cimex lectularius Latreille (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) (Davis 1965), 90 s in the Chinese (oak) tussah moth, Antheraea pernyi
(Guerin-Meneville) (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae) and 5-8 min in the Cecropia moth, Hyalophora cecropia L.

The mean genetic distance among all populations (0.014) was higher than the one that was found previously in populations of other insect species such as Antheraea pernyi
(0.002-0.006) and C.
