Bagworm rearing

Male Psyche casta
Following Dave's bagworm post I have posted a couple of photographs of Psyche casta  I reared a couple of years ago.

Female Psyche casta ovipositing.

The flightless female will be mated as she emerges from the pupa within the case.
She then proceeds to lay her eggs on and in the case - this is what is happening in the photograph.
