This "multi-banded" bagworm was initially spotted on the stem of the Clinacanthus nutans this late morning. Later it moved to the underside of a torenia leaf. Measuring about 1 cm, it's more unique than those I've seen because this one takes the case engineering to another level. This conical case is made out of a few bands in different colors and textures. Interesting blue specks are seen on the white bands. Wish I knew what and where the specks came from.
Update @ 120625 - Spotted another of similar kind today which is slightly bigger. Though less appealing, it's no less interesting than the other.
