Lepidoptera Pupa

While on a recent walk around an Indian River valley muskeg, Rowan and I noticed a pupa in a scuff mark along the trail. I thought maybe it had overwintered in the ground and just been turned up by whatever made the mark, but further examination over the next couple of days made me decide that perhaps it was actually just freshly pupated. I’m keeping it at home in a container, so hopefully it will eclose (fancy word for emerge as an adult) and we’ll be able to identify it.
