This tiny critter is wrapped in silken threads, suspended in the center of it protective ‘basket’. The ends of the ‘hairs’ are stuck in the leaf. I am intrigued to see what this exquisite grub with a golden abdomen will turn into. I would appreciate it if anyone can also enlighten me as to whether the grub constructed its own basket (with what?) then somehow wrapped itself inside it. Taken in my garden in far NW Thailand.
