Hello,
This creature was photographed in Kasanka National Park, Zambia. It was crawling on the hood of a stationary car, possibly fell down from an overhanging bush. Date: May 10, 2011.
Any idea, at least to genus? I’d be grateful. Thanks.

Dear Monika,
That is sure one crazy looking Bagworm with its grassy bag.  Bagworms generally create their bags from the foliage of the plants they feed upon.  If you are able to identify the plant species it is feeding upon, it will facilitate a species identification for the Bagworm.
