Description

What happened here? I assume the weevil was dead, since it wasn't moving and was missing some legs. But it was inside a eucalypt leaf that had been folded into a tetrahedron (see fourth picture). Some sort of web was holding it together. Another leaf on the same plant had been folded up in the same way. What made these? And did it fold up the leaf and then drag the weevil inside, or immobilise the weevil and then fold the leaf around it?

Seen by Semmens Road, in German Town Regional Reserve.
