Mount Uniacke, Hants County, Nova Scotia, Canada August 29, 2008 Size: Less than an Inch
So I found this this morning. It appears to be a dead moth, which has possibly been dead for a few days. Maybe from a spider? It was stuck there. But I have no idea what the tentacle like appendages are protruding from the abdomen. I wouldn't have thought it was a moth at one point other than the wings. Would this be eggs or puppae from a parasitic insect? This was taken in Mount Uniacke, Nova Scotia, Canada. This morning, so 8/29/2008. Possibly some kind of mold or lichen as well I suppose?
