I saw this attached to the trunk of a tree in the Ocean Grove Nature Reserve, Victoria, Australia. Does anyone know what creature constructed this, does it live in there or is it a cocoon?

Looks like a type of cocoon that has hatched. No idea what species though. Probably some type of moth.
Agree with Jason!I just recently watched a short video on caterpillars forming their cocoons and chrysalis. Was an amazing show.There is only 1 moth/butterfly that is in this stage that I’ll always recognise, the Monarch, and that’s only because there’s has little gold dots in a row.Wish I could help with this one…nature is amazing how she transforms!
