Abbot's Bagworm Moth

Oiketicus abbotii


Most range maps I've seen seem to be from Southern US. Varied host plants. Seen in suburbs, parks, home gardens.


This one has made its "bag" from palm fronds, as it is living in one of my parent's areca palms. I caught it moving up the leaf the other day, which gave me the opportunity to photograph the caterpillar living inside. (at least its head and front legs.)
