I found this chrysalis attached to a signpost in Cuc Phuong National Park, Vietnam. The chrysalis was suspended inside a finely woven 'cage' by delicate threads. I'd be very grateful if anyone could ID the maker of this amazing contraption!
The maker of the amazing contraption is the Cyana meyricki caterpillar. It's body is covered in irritating hairs which it binds together with silk to form this cage.
Hope this helps
Absolutely superb, thank you so much habdab for the correct ID - I wasn't able to find this out myself, despite my best googling. Excellent work, much appreciated
