What type of bug/nest is this?

What type of bug/nest is this? Central NJ. Someone suggested mud dauber but it doesn’t look like anything I googled.
Thanks, sorry, best photo I have.

Yeah hard to tell by the pic.
My best Entomologist guess is an immature stage of some type moth.
At this stage they’re beetles.
Where was this, were you near a kitchen or stored food pantry?
Was the opposing wall the exterior of the structure?


I was thinking moth too Marc. Usually white, then once discarded will turn a brownish color over time. Just a guess though… Probably a lick test is in store… :thinking:


Yes it is Tom!

Thank you for replying. Not need a food source, but yes, in the basement, exterior wall.
