Spiophanes bombyx is found in clean sand from the low water mark to about 60 m.
Spiophanes bombyx is a small, slender bristleworm (5-6 cm long by 0.15 cm wide).
Spiophanes bombyx has two long frontal horns on the prostomium and a stout rearward pointing horn.

  Silk Circa 1840: Deegan Paper
Bombyx mori is characterized by membranous wings coupled at base and covered with overlapping scales.
According to the monograph, the pupa state, when the cocoon is spun by Bombyx mori, is the result of the change of a larva's habits which were passed genetically to the next generation of Bombyx mori, and is, "with little doubt, an acquired habit, originally formed by a single individual.".
By this Packard meant that Bombyx mori at one point in its evolution was only a larva in its adult form, during its next evolutionary stage it was larva and then pupa as an adult, and most recently is in its present evolutionary stage goes from the larva to the pupa to the imago form.

 Bombyx mori - Wikipedia
Il baco da seta (Bombyx mori, dal latino bruco da seta dell'albero di gelso) è una larva di falena di notevole importanza economica in quanto utilizzato nella produzione della seta.
In seguito, questa pratica si diffuse anche altrove (ed è ancora oggi utilizzata in diverse regioni italiane, specialmente del sud, come la Calabria) ma la Sicilia mantenne per diversi secoli una posizione avvantaggiata nella produzione di seta; questa attività contribuì notevolmente alla ricchezza dell'isola.
Il baco da seta viene utilizzato dalla medicina tradizionale cinese nella forma di bombyx batryticatus o "baco da seta rigido".

 ::The Moths of Borneo::
The male antennae are bipectinate throughout as are the somewhat shorter (relatively to wing length) ones of the females in the Bombyx lineage.
The saccus is only strongly developed in the Bombyx lineage where it is variably associated or even fused with the bifid modification of the eighth sternite to form a joint structure reminiscent of the cubile of some Lasiocampidae.
The other two were Bombyx lemeepauli, a good species in the Bombyx group (but probably not Bombyx) that has also been taken in N. Thailand, and Ocinara tamsi, possibly a synonym of one of the Trilocha or Ocinara species discussed by Dierl (1978).

The Bombyx mori eggs were taken out of cold storage on March 17.
The baby cats are curled head-to-tail like a letter C. Bombyx mori undergo diapause in the egg - similar to hibernation - they pass through the winter in a barely-alive state, and perk up when it gets warm again.
The males are unable to fly, but the pheremone drives them crazy, and they buzz their useless wings and walk excitedly around.

Peptidergic neurons, which serve as source of various endocrine neuropeptides, were identified in the suboesophageal ganglion (SG) and brain of insects.
In the silkworm Bombyx mori, SG is known to secrete two neuropeptides, diapause hormone (DH) responsible for induction of embryonic diapause and pheromone biosynthesis-activating neuropeptide, which share a pentapeptide amide, Phe-Xaa-Pro-Arg-Leu-NH (Xaa = Gly or Ser), at the C terminus.
We have isolated cDNA clones for DH from the cDNA library of SG by using oligonucleotide probes.
