Butterfly type?
Hi there,
its the start of winter here in Ontario and while walking along a creek the other day I found this on an old surveying stick. Its about 2.5 inches long by 1.5 wide and 1.5 deep, pretty fat for what I’m guessing is a butterfly pupae. It was found near Orangeville, Ontario if that helps at all. Sorry for the dark photo but it was more ‘toffee’ colored than the pic shows and quite scaly. Thanks. A great site that is really fun to scan through.

Hi Andrew,
This is a Preying Mantis Eggcase and in the spring, several hundred mantidlings will emerge.
