Missed this one Tristan, Really lovely. the cocoons of this moth are built under water and the larvae feed on algae on rocks. There is some interesting reading available about the moth cocoons being attacked by a wasp where the wasp lays her eggs inside the cocoon and fills the cocoon with air (presumably) so the wasp larva does not drown !
