What Insect Is This??

Hi guys! I'm new to gardening and is not familiar with other insects except for bees and butterflies. :-() O:)

Could anyone please help me know what insect this is and would this benefit my plant? I think it's been laying here on my lemon balm for a couple of days now.



Thank you!

It looks kind of big unless you have tiny hands. So this might not be it -- did it have a stripe?

Whatever it is, it looks like it's getting ready to pupate.
