My friend Marj photographed this on an Umbellifer stem in Chorlton Water Park recently. Can anyone enlighten us as to what it is? We think it may be a cocoon.
Are you sure it was an umbellifer? The stem looks like nettle to me. It could be a fungus that grows on nettle at this time of year, the Rust Fungus, Puccinia urticata (or P. caricina).
Thank you ever so much for your help!
