What is This?

Okay. I’m stumped: What is this? I bet someone knows.

Found it this morning on the back of a large, dry grass blade. The grass was upright — I bent it over to take the photo.

I’m guessing an insect egg case. But what insect?

It’s hard. Coal black. About 8 mm long (about 0.3 inch), slightly narrower side to side. Rippled surface. A slight “pinch” at one end.

    1. I’m going to contact a couple of entomological groups and see what they might say. (And of course, it will turn out to be something so common they’ll be surprised I’d never seen one before. Ma Nature playing tricks on me. Again.)
