Saunder's case moths live and pupate in their silken cases which they cover in short twigs as they grow larger. The female remains in the case and has no wings, whereas the male grows wings and emerges from the case. Both sexes reach about 3cm in length. This one had a case of about 8cm.
Found alongside a footpath between a residential block and a small creek.
