Luffia ferchaultella

On my back fence today were at least a dozen Luffia ferchaultella micro moth larvae with a case constructed from bands of lichen. This was my favourite:


The fence was treated with preservative only about six weeks ago, so I'm not sure where they came from, or what they are now feeding upon!
