You might have read our blog posts sometimes in July about this caterpillar that appeared in our office.
In the composition picture above, we showed the caterpillar in action from 8 plus in the morning until 12 plus in the afternoon. It was building a nice enclosure for a rest, and it did so by chewing off part of the leaf blade on both sides, and curling the leaf blade together.You might be curious what happened to the caterpillar. Unfortunately, it didn’t survive. The condition was probably too harsh for the tiny being.
However, someone recently responded to an earlier call to identify the caterpillar. He said it was likely a type of skipper caterpillar and even posted in the “Butterflies of Singapore and Malaysia” Facebook Group to ask for other opinions. Another person responded to that and said it might be skipper cat caterpillar. It was exciting to revisit the subject. I ran a search for skipper cat caterpiller and I found this awesome video of a skipper caterpillar building an enclosure for rest.
Enjoy the video!
