Default Unknown Insect? Harmful?

Greetings all,

Anyone has any idea what this is and whether it is harmful to orchids? It looks like some egg but it was empty when i peel it off. Im not sure what is this.


Thanks in advance.

Sorry, the photo is too out-of-focus to be able to identify anything.

The picture isn't too clear, and I don't know what species you might have in your area, but it looks to me somewhat like a mantis egg case. They're generally considered to be beneficial predators, in fact the egg cases are sold in garden centers here.
Here's a little article about a California relative:

Check out the photos and see if that looks similar. Thanks for sharing pictures. Your climate, flora and fauna are so interesting!
