Deco bug ~ Ailanthus Webworm/Ermine Moth

Deco bug ~ Ailanthus Webworm/Ermine Moth

Pretty common bug, but very pretty. Love the orange and cream colored coat.

*update 7/7/07* I've learned that the little bug pictured is actually a tiny moth! And it's called the Ailanthus Webworm, Atteva punctella.
