worm guy with pine needle house on his back


This little creature was crawling across the driveway. He seems to be carrying his pine needle home in his back. The second photo is for size reference. Would love some help identifiying this creatures. I was thinking bagworm but it is realy tiny compared to most "bags" I have seen.

No species ID suggestions

I was wondering if this is some type of bag worm although anything I have seen in the past has been much bigger. Any help with ID would be appreciated.

Very cool spotting!

Now I´m just guessing- could that be a Trichoptera family member?
