Pagoda Bagworm

Pagodiella hekmeyeri


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

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....

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
