Psyche casta

(Pallas, 1767)


Wingspan 12-15 mm.

Known as 'bagworms' or 'case-bearers', the larvae of the Psychidae construct cases from fragments of plant material, in this instance, pieces of grass. The case is attached to a tree trunk or foliage, or quite often to a wooden fence or gate.

The larvae feed on grasses, lichens and decaying vegetable matter.

The adult males are plain, dull brownish moths. The females are wingless and grub-like in appearance. Both sexes emerge between May and July.
