Some sort of Larvae?

Observed: 21st October 2013 By: elessar999

I found what seems to be a Pod in our Bathroom on Tenerife (Canary Islands). It has a very small, centipede looking, insect wriggling its way out of the pod at one of the ends.
I used to get these out in Saba (Dutch Caribbean) as well and I was wondering if it is something very common or if I have brought these with me in my luggage without noticing.

Looks very like a butterfly pupa to me, but difficult to tell from this photo. The insect could be the adult butterfly before its wings have expanded.
