Yea I always have some cocoons on hand,I only say beacause it’s the only thing I can compare the look to and there are also two in one cocoon also waiting on silk eggs to hatch now haven’t had them in a month in a half nowInteresting. I would say doubtfully hornworms. They tend to pupate in dirt and their cocoon is hard and dark brown. Silkworms....maybe?
That is very weird. Youre sure its a single larva and not a cluster of spider eggs right? sorry kinda hard for me to tell from the picture on this 10 year old computer screen.
I’m so glad you can see that the little arms are what made think they are hornworms but I did not think they spun silk.Maybe it’s a super I have like 25 in the substrate.hahaha theyre not spider eggs i can see clearly now, the pic on the right you can see its little legs towards the front of his body, very odd
Wow that be insane if it’s silks,it’s been awhile since I fed him silks and it was in his old and enclosure with different plants.It wouldn’t be a super, and butters can’t pupate because they’re treated before leaving Chile, and they’re too big to be BSFL, so my best guess is silkworms
Edit: it could be butters because those aren’t pupated and butters do spin silk
Looking into that now also just found a darker cocoon on another one of my hibiscus and my suspicions are leaning toward god dang “saw fly larvae”I don’t feed waxworms, but maybe it could also be that?
