bagworm case

bagworm case
Rickett Point, Harford County, Maryland, USA
December 15, 2019
Approximate length 1.5". This bagworm case was on a sweetgum sapling along the shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay where it is exposed to constant, brisk (and stronger) winds. This may explain why the bag hangs at about a 45-degree angle. Thyridopteryx ephemeraeformis?
