Abbot's Bagworm Moth
Oiketicus abbotii

Observation date: September 11, 2019
Submitted by: dajon
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I first noticed this on my cactus plant. Then I saw it on the ground and placed it on top of a table outside. This morning it is hanging on the edge of the table so it is alive. A few days before I saw this, I reported a moth sighting near the location of this cocoon. It was a Peacock moth.
