Bagworm Moth Caterpillar (Psychidae)

The larvae of psychid moth are wrapped inside a silk bag that eventually covered with bits of plant debris. Sometimes, you can find them hanging in mid-air from above the trees.




The springtail (Seira sp, Collembola) on the wood debris is an unexpected guest. ID given by Frans Janssens @ www.collembola.org
