This was a toughie teaser.
It a Cecropia Moth cocoon.
We would not have known what it was without consulting a nationally recognized moth expert, who writes: "The Cecropia is by far our largest silk moth and a real beauty, too!"
Congrats to Mike Gempp, who said it was a Silk Moth cocoon.
We'll have some exciting moth news in coming days, so stay tuned!
