I think it is Psychidae (bagworm moth) caterpillar.

Lepidoptera, Psychidae, probably Luffia

Hi,
Harri Jalava told me that it is Dahlica triquetrella (Psychidae).

Thank you very much for all your help!
Pentti.

Dahlica triquetrella larvae have paler head and thorax (as far as I am aware). I think this is likely to be one of the other Dahlica species (such as lichenella) which, like Luffia, have dark, almost black, head and thorax.
There are pupal characters which can be used to separate the parthenogenetic, wingless females.

It was an inode issues. In practise, I think it means there were more files on the server than the system catered for. The limit has been doubled and we should be save for quite some time.
