Hanging by a thread - Fulgoraecia exigua

Hanging by a thread - Fulgoraecia exigua
Pennypack Restoration Trust, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, USA
August 19, 2010
Size: 4-5 mm
I found a caterpillar on August 13 just like
hanging from a tree by a thread. I took it home and put it in a container with paper towels and covered by mesh. It refused the substrate I provided and climbed to the top where it proceeded to hang from a thread once again. Eventually it made this cocoon.
