    Ignore the WUM. The Mods will deal with it when they're back at their desks.  image

    Your photo  looks like the cocoon of a moth caterpillar ... don't know what type - inside the cocoon it'll form a chrysalis and then pupate and eventually emerge as a fully-fledged adult moth.  Keep it in the same sort of environment as you found it and it should be fine.  

    Edited to say:  I'm sure it'll be fine in your bug house image
