Wasp emerged from cocoon
Description:

2 cocoons found in ordinary garden soil by daughter, we believed them to be crane fly cocoons, kept inside in soil in jar with muslin lid for observation, each hatched (after ~ 1 month) the same kind of ?wasp? Parasitic? The first had under-developed wings, the second had better wings, but we did not see it fly.
