Unknown cocoon and pupa
Observed: 2nd March 2012 By: Foxglove

Found a number of these cocoons attached to the underside of young birch saplings. Most appeared to have been predated, bt found this one still containing the pupa, although it was damaged. Looks like a moth or butterfly pupa to me as can make out the antenae and wings. Cocoon is pearly white with hint of yellow.
