Any idea on this 'cocoon'

    Looks like it is a spiders nest ...

  • A strange looking spidey indeed. No idea TBH but doesn't look anywhere near as intimidating as the raft/water spiders.

    I think it's one of these 'Long-jawed Orb-weaver Spider'

    'When frightened Long-jawed Orb-weaver spiders lie flat out with their legs stretched out in a straight line.  This allows them to hide behind thin vegetation.'
