Pupa casing

Observation - Pupa casing. Description: Interesting pupa I found on the bark of an oak tree. Quite small (maybe about 12mm in length), and anchored to the bark by fine silky threads. It was about 120cm up the tree and quite exposed. It looked empty, so I assume something had emerged from it fa

Interesting pupa I found on the bark of an oak tree. Quite small (maybe about 12mm in length), and anchored to the bark by fine silky threads. It was about 120cm up the tree and quite exposed. It looked empty, so I assume something had emerged from it fairly recently, but it was the only one I saw. I assume it's from a beetle or similar, but I really don't know.
