Bag worm? eating the leaves of this Syzygium jambos - Rose apple tree, and then attaching the membranes to itself .... I think. That's what appears to be happening. The complete tree is being chomped

Thanks everyone! It's great to be able to share what I come across while out walking here in Thailand with you all, where ever in the world you might be. The same applies for me being lucky enough to see what you are all experiencing in your "neck of the woods". ....... and it's all thanks to Project Noah :)

What a great job for a house ! Your first shot is just brilliant Viv. Thanks for sharing. I just found a small one yesterday and all it could stick on its bag were clumps of dirt - he'd be so envious if he saw this one....
