Leaf Rollers

Leaf rollers use silk to make these cocoon-like shelters.

I have found this sign only on California bay trees. The location is a mixed forest environment in northern California, Humboldt County. I have not yet been able to determine what species of invertebrate creates these.

 

 
leaf roller sign on California bay tree
This sign has, so far, been found only on the California bay tree. Inside each rolled leaf cocoon I find silk that the creature uses to anchor the leaves, as well as frass, or scat. I have not yet found the critter responsible!
