Psyche casta ( or another bagworm)

There have been developments with the larval case of the `bagworm` Psyche casta (if it is this particular species) that I collected from the side of a large Carboniferous limestone boulder at Pembrey Old Harbour on Saturday - they have hatched. The larvae have been making individual cases from the old case of their mother and are moving around the small glass container. I`ll try to take a better photo later. See my previous blog for a photo of the larval case, made of grass stems.
