      1. It's the cocoon of a parasitic wasp in the subfamily Campopleginae. These usually lay their eggs in a caterpillar or some such, the larva eats the inside of the caterpillar while it is still alive and eventually comes out of the dead or dying caterpillar and spins itself a nice cocoon to pupate, such as this one. Cheers, Arp

        PS You should probably be able to find the old skin of the caterpillar quite near the top of the "string" that the cocoon is suspended from.
