Rhopalosomatidae larval exoskeleton & dead cricket

Rhopalosomatidae larval exoskeleton & dead cricket
Ames, Story County, Iowa, USA

Size: 4+mm and 2+ mm
I checked this morning and there was just the larval exoskeleton, split open above the head. Perhaps the larva has gone into the peat substrate.
