What kind of Egg Case

What kind of Egg Case
Near Seymore, Indiana , Muscatatuk National Wildlife Refuge, Jackson Co. County, Indiana, USA
September 1, 2019
Size: Approximately 1 square in
I took this picture of an insect case on a cattail leaf. It's white with a tough cottony texture. I opened a similar case and found numerous ΒΌ inch stubby wasp like insects with a black thorax and orange abdomen. Is this a sawfly egg case? Any idea what species? I will post another Picture showing imature larvea.
