Insect and Spider Identification
Sheila_FW Fort Worth, TX (Zone 8a) This small tubular bag worm like structure moves daily attaching itself at one end. After placing a damp tissue and various leaves in the container, a larval form seemed to have come out of the bag. I am not sure if the green bug near it came from it, but my neighbor did say she smashed a small green insect before seeing the tube.
I appreciate your interest.

Flapdoodle Minot, ND Looks more like a case-bearing beetle larva than a caterpillar, but image not clear enough to tell. The green insect is unrelated, may be a leafhopper nymph.
Sheila_FW Fort Worth, TX (Zone 8a) Thanks, would you know what it might eat in the larval stage? I might try to keep it until it matures so she can watch for more.
Flapdoodle Minot, ND Hard to tell since it was not found on any likely food item. If it is a beetle larva, it will be a leaf feeder; if it's a caterpillar, could be just about anything organic...
Sheila_FW Fort Worth, TX (Zone 8a) Guess I will close this as I think it died. Hasn't moved since it was last photographed. Thanks
