Searching for cocoon sample
Hi, I'm trying to find someone who could help me having one or more samples of this cocoon for research propose for my Master program here at the University of Stuttgart. But since I'm in Germany I couldn't find one here. Would you be interested or know someone who is interested in selling some samples. This is really important to our project. Thanks you!

Actually a cocoon (protecting a pupa) of a spongillafly.
