unidentified cocoons in ash log

IMG_0038[1].JPG

Hi All

 

This is something I have never seen before.

 

This line of five cocoon like packages was found after splitting a log of ash, collected in Uffington, UK. The hole was bored in the log possibly by a beetle larvae and I assume that these are the cocoon stage of whatever made the holes. Each cocoon is perfectly wrapped in a leaf and measures about 10 mm x 16 mm.

 

Is anyone able to identify this?
