I did little research on the cocoon. It is quite amazing how these caterpillars make mesh cages. This is what it says:

“The cocoon made by the caterpillar is quite remarkable. It is an open square mesh cage, constructed out of larval hairs held together with silk. The hairs are too short to construct the cage directly, so the caterpillar attaches pairs of hairs to each other end to end, and uses these pairs to make the sides of the cage” From:
