Caterpillar

Caterpillar
Chicamicomico river, Dorchester County, Maryland, USA
September 22, 2018
Meadow near deciduous forests. Small holes on surface I presume are the result of a parasitic wasp laying eggs.

Most likely
Most likely what remains of an Acronicta insularis caterpillar attacked by Aleiodes stigmator parasitoid wasps.
