I need help. I found this object on the ground under an old, large elm tree during the lunch hour dog walk. It is sitting on graph paper that has 1 cm squares. It is less than 10 grams in weight, I'd say about 5 grams from what it looked like on my scales. It feels fairly solid but is not rock hard by any means. I suspect that it is a winter shelter for some sort of insect/butterfly/moth but I don't know. Any one have any ideas?
For now I am putting it in a large jar in the unheated barn with cheese cloth on top to keep whatever inside if it chances to come out.
