I found one today too. It was laying outside my school and on the way home I spotted it thinking it was a regular butterfly cocoon, it moved and I freaked out.

I Found One Too
Mine just a bit bigger. I found it on top of the ground.

I found one like that

It could be a lot of things
Many moths have a pupa like this.


I'm curious, too
I just dug up two (accidentally smooshed one w/shovel) of these last night while planting my dutchman pipe vine. Let me know what develops!
