ABSTRACT
Cocoon, a tough bag or case spun by the larva of certain insects for protection during the pupa, or resting, stage. The cocoons most commonly seen are those spun by the caterpillars of moths. A modified salivary gland opening through the caterpillar's mouth secretes the silk that is used to spin the cocoon.
