  1. Cool find! Are you sure it's a bagworm moth? Just curious if it could be a spider egg sac or something else? It has such an interesting shape. Posted 2 months ago
    1. Christine you made me think and yes it was worth looking into. I opened the little bag and it is a moth pupae. I will keep it safe until it will emerge. That still will not tel me what species it is but can try. Posted 2 months ago
      1. Cool! The cocoon was so interesting. I hope the moth emerges for you, and then maybe the ID can be determined. Posted 2 months ago
