Default Promethea Moth Cocoon?

Last year, early spring, I found what I took to be a Promethea moth pupa hidden in a dried leaf on my spicebush. Faithfully, I went out with my camera often during spring to try to capture it enclosing. It never happened. That one is still hanging there...but now it is joined by six others.

Here is hoping these make it.

Please correct me if my I.D. is wrong.
