Canna Skipper Caterpillar.

Quinta cannae.


Canna Skippers make their own cartridges by cutting along a Canna leaf and then weaving it with silk threads. In pictures #1-3 is shown an opened cartridge with the caterpillar. While in pictures #4-5 is shown a caterpillar weaving its own cartridge.


Gardens-Places with abundance in Canna Plants. Achirales.


I added a video about the caterpillar weaving the cartridge.
