Spotting

Description:

A chrysalis, about 20mm in length. Being fully mirrored, I soon thought about a Glasswing butterfly (Greta). Will be?

Habitat:

Rural area of southeastern Brazil.

Notes:

Green is not pigmentation or anything, it's just the leaf's reflection. The cocoon is completely mirrored. The small red spots on the other side are reflections of my coat.
