Hanging by a thread. 9/3/10 - Fulgoraecia exigua - Female
Pennypack Restoration Trust, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, USA
Size: BL 5 mm, to wing tip 6 mm
I found the adult moth today, September 3. I don't know when it emerged; it could have been a few days ago. Cocoon collected on August 19, 2010.
It came from a caterpillar just like the one which was parasitizing a planthopper (Acanalonia conica)
