Cicada Exuvia - Cicadidae
Mature nymphs emerge from the soil at night and climb onto nearby vegetation or any vertical surface. They then molt into winged adults. Their shed outer skins or exoskeletons are found attached to tree trunks and twigs. You can still see the dirt on this exuvia left from when the nymph lived underground.
