I found this cocoon very interesting in more than one way. First of all, it was attached to a board on the ground next to a small wooden house we recently constructed. The roof of house extends out from the walls about 50cm, so it was more or less protected from any possible rain. I have no idea what material was used to build the cocoon. It looks very much like fiberglass filaments. After taking the first photograph (lower image) I lifted the cocoon from the board. It was empty. Whoever had occupied the neat little womb, had left. In the top image, the space inside.
