This is the shed exoskeleton or exuvia of a Cicada. A Cicada is a winged insect that makes noise in trees and spends years underground as a nymph. When maturity nears, the nymph digs to the surface and molts one final time, emerging as an adult winged Cicada. The nymph generally climbs a vertical surface, like a wall or tree trunk or fence post. The Cicada that emerged from this exuvia selected your discarded pizza box.
