I found a , , wild cecropia moth cocoon while salamander hunting in early March. I noticed in my FB feed that I've posted emerging cecropias on this day in previous years, so I went to check on the cocoon (which I had just tucked into a wreath that hangs on the house). I was disappointed to feel how light it was and figured the moth had already eclosed and left. But I couldn't see an opening that was enough for the moth to get through. I was even more disappointed to discover, upon opening the cocoon, that the pupa was still there but had been destroyed by parasitic flies. The moth pupa is the Giger-looking g, the fly pupae are the smaller ones. The moth would have been a male--you can tell by the heavily feathered antennae impressions in the pupal shell.
