This data contains measurements of immune function (strength of encapsulation response against an artificial parasite) at pupal and adult stage, adult dry body mass and egg-to-adult development time in Galleria mellonella. The moths were divided between different treatment groups according to larval diet (low- or high-nutrition diet) and immune activation treatment. Immune activation treatment groups include controls, sham controls (subjected to a minor cuticular puncture) and moths subjected to an artificial parasite-like immune challenge using nylon monofilament implants. The immune activation treatment was conducted one day after pupation.
