A masterpiece "log-cabin" case of a New Guinea species of case moth (bagworm moth), family Psychidae.
Spotted on Bougainvillea sp. in a large semi-urban yard/garden adjacent to a disturbed remnant patch of forest.
This spotting is on a different plant (although same species) than the previous spotting here: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/704.... See more details about this kind of spotting there. This or a closely related species apparently occurs in Singapore as well http://www.flickr.com/photos/siyangteo/3... A "poor cousin" in terms of architectural finesse can be seen here http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/782...
Lat: -2.56, Long: 140.50
