A 5mm tall cone of sawdust with legs underneath.
Walking on a gum leaf (Eucalyptus microcarpa) suburban nature strip but next to dense dry eucalyptus forest.
Camera flat => only one shot was good. Sure seemed a cute disguise. The feet working underneath looked like leaf-beetle feet. This little thing moved quite quickly - not much like other case moths I've seen. Family: Psychidae. Subfamily: Taleporiinae. feeds on eucalyptus http://bie.ala.org.au/species/urn:lsid:b... This is probably the moth http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/212...
