Casebaring Leafbeetle larva / cryptocephalinae subfamily June 2008
This Casebaring Leafbeetle larva lives on the underside blackberry leaves. When I turned the leaf over the larva started moving. The black case protects it from being eaten by birds. Close inspection of these cases will reveal tiny legs.
