Poison Ivy Cat 2 - Macalla zelleri

Poison Ivy Cat 2 - Macalla zelleri
Desoto, Dallas County, Texas, USA
July 16, 2009
Found at edge of woods/clearing on poison ivy. The silk is VERY strong! As you can see, there is evidence of feeding on the plant.

Edit: I went back the next day and the two I photographed had moved from their leaves, but a little snooping revealed several more in the same area, all wrapped in poison ivy leaves.
