Who am I?

I found this cocoon on a brug. It's barely spun and you can see the pupa inside. The black dot on the upper L side is a piece of frass that's stuck to the silk. Can someone tell me what it is? I wonder if it's one of those little green cats that have been devouring my brugs?

looks like a geometrid moth

Thanks. Those are the ones that infest my brugs every year. I try to pick them off but they're so well camouflaged that I always miss some.
