Cacoons or critter carcuss

I am harvesting my bin. I don't know whether the little hard shell creatures are cocoons or carcusses of some other critter. Can anyone post a photo of worm cocoons?

If they look like this they are Black Solider Fly Larvae BSFL.

Thanks. They were neither of those. I let the harvest dry out in show box side platic containers. The carcusses disappeared.
