Redbud Leaffolder

Fasciata cercerisella

Description:

Black and white striped moth larva that ties and folds redbud leaves

Habitat:

Woodland, yard

Notes:

The larva moved back and forth very fast, sewing his silk ties to fold the leaf. He would then stay hidden inside the folded leaf to eat.

Thank you Argy Bee. You don't usually spot these guys because they're hidden in the folded leaves.
