I was pulling a bumper off the truck at home and This was in the back of the Aluminium bumper, and it caught my eye. I have no idea what it is. I made sure it went back onto the truck undamaged. Any idea people to satisfy my curiosity.

Mantis egg case: kind of papery but tough?

It did not appear to be made of mud or soil, mind you I did not dig to hard.

Its an egg case. Maybe mud wasp, based on its color and possible material??? Is it made of soil? Maybe mantis, based on its shape???
