Armyworm burrow/cocoon burrow

Mythimna unipuncta


It is an interesting site, when i first saw it i thought it was a wolf spider burrow but then after opening that burrow i saw an empty cocoon shell of an true armyworm.The spotting was a first for me because usually they make their cocoons under ground without making a entrance and a burrow but i guess i was wrong.


I found it under an old wood plank.


Freshly hatched due to the meconium that was found in the burrow.Meconium is the excess liquid that is produced after the leftover food is in the cocoon.
