Hi, I found this empty chrysalis on the tree in my garden in Kent (UK) last summer.
Can someone identify it please?
all the best,

Hi Una, there looks to be remnants of a cocoon on your empty pupal case ... as this is made of silk reinforced with caterpillar's own hair it could well have been taken by a bird for nesting material as it was in such an exposed spot!
