Submitted by: John LeBlanc
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Please excuse me if I wasn't supposed to submit these type of pictures. I just realized that the black material in the 'web-nest'could be from the caterpillar. I also noticed several of them climbing the walls of the house trying to get to the top portions were I found a few of these clusters of pupae.
