Ever heard of a moth without wings?! Well that is exactly what you are looking at. 
In this series of shots from QuestaGamer Savage you can see the pupa of an Anestia ombrophanes moth inside a cocoon of caterpillar hairs. The tiny wingless female adult emerges and waits for male visitors, before laying lots of pearly eggs. 
This is just one of Savage's sightings featured in our latest blog post - https://questagame.com/storyposts/my-savage-quest
