Ben guesses a Cicada...let us know :)
I'm terrible at identifying pupae (is that the correct term?). But it will be fun to find out by checking back on your blog. I hear it's a big year for some Cicadas, which ties in with Kat and Ben's guess.
My guess is it's a Pandora moth. Could be something more insidious, like a Prionus borer. I'd take it to you local extension office for an ID.
I've seen similar in my garden too but have no idea what they are - will be following with interest to find out!
It wiggles? Maybe it's a Mexican jumping bean!
Ha! That's what I said, too, Holley! I should mention that I find them in the soil, as in BURIED in the soil. That is what has me stumped.
I found some today too, Carolyn! Cicada pupa my first thought ... it's suppose to be a stellar year for them!
Hi Carolyn, I'm a new garden blogger and first time to your lovely site...so glad I found you!My guess is a later stage Cabbage looper pupa, after darkening.glimpsesofglory-karen.blogspot.com/
