Thanks for the ID Keith & for your kind comment!Thank you too Maria & Augustin!
Some of the Case-bearers feed on leaves. I don't think they ever rise to the level of being pests. I have never actually seen one. Marvelous spotting.
Beautiful pattern and colours. Nice spotting Karen. The bug guide didn't help?
My friend saved it! It was struggling so valiantly we just felt it should have a second chance! I'm sure it will turn out to be a pest species though!
Wow! Looks like it was really stuck in there! Did you save it or did it save itself?
