Can anyone help with this identification and possibly notes for overwintering?
Message from Sue C. Morse:
We would be most grateful if you would weigh in on the maker of this lovely leaf-wrapped cocoon. It was sent to us by a customer of ours wanting help with its identification. We suspect it is either a luna or Saturnidae of some kind, but we would love to have your expert opinion. It was found newly dropped from a tree down onto a covered compost pile in Lincoln earlier this month. I have kept it cool, but not below freezing since then - inside of a box where it can be in a dark environment. Bobbie and I found an email account of where one expert who gently hung these cocoons from a line, and watched them emerge safely at the appropriate time.
