Rhanidophora phedonia

Order:   Lepidoptera

Family:  Noctuidae

Patience! Eventually I can verify how the moth of this caterpillar looks like. I caught a caterpillar and let it pupate in a container. The cocoon was made from fine silk threads and covered in sand on the outside. It was on the surface attached to some of the dead leaves in the container.
