Not a butterfly

The kids brought in another caterpillar last week which they've been keeping in leaves and looking after diligently. We were VERY excited when this one made a different kind of structure - usually they create a hard brown casing but this one spun silk to sew a little house out of silk. We were hoping this meant it was a butterfly or at least something more interesting than the little brown corn earworm moths we've mostly raised but it turns out that I just don't know anything about cocoons, chrysalises or butterflies.
