In my 40+ years of studying Lepidoptera, I have come across many parasitised cats, but none as extreme as this! Has anyone come across this before, and if so, any idea of the nasty little beastie responsible for this outrage on a lovely hawkmoth cat?

that looks quite similar to the doughy tissue n pellets on my parasited day flying moth cat. But i didnt hang on to the tissue to see what might come crawling out of there! :(
