SOUTH EAST ASIAN MOTHS COLEOPHORIDAE (CASEBEARER MOTHS, MOMPHID MOTHS)

SE Asian Moths Drepanidae (Hooktip Moths, False Owlet Moths)


Casebearer moth caterpillars generally adorn their silken ‘cases’ with lichen and moss fragments in tropical environments. The pupa is always extruded from the bottom of the case. Caterpillars of some of the more well known species only create a case in the latter stages of their development
