Cryptothelea fuscescens


An abandoned "log-cabin" case of a New Guinea species of casemoth (bagworm moth), family Psychidae.


Spotted on Polyalthia sp (?), in a large semi-urban yard/garden adjacent to a disturbed remnant patch of forest. This is the first of many such cases I've observed that was NOT on Bougainvillea sp. There was a Bougainvillea shrub 2 meters away however (not touching).
