Larval case - What comes out of this cocoon??? This fly-like moth emerged.
Sometimes common on gum trees. They eat leaves over-night, then stitch themselves onto a branch for their daily nap. Neat.
Female casemoths live out their lives inside the case. Males will emerge from one end as tiny clear winged moths. http://www1.ala.org.au/gallery2/v/Psychi...
