Clothes Moth

Whats this ?
Can anybody help ? Is this a carpet moth emerging from its cocoon ? The case is approx 1cm long. I have several fist sized areas of damage to carpets under cupboards where the cocoons are attached. They are also attached to walls.

Hi Robert,
We are not sure if this is a Clothes Moth or a Case-Bearing Clothes Moth. Our suspicion is thqt it is the latter, Tinea pellionella.
