The habitat was very rocky soil with mostly oak and wild blueberry bushes around. They were under quite a bit of leaf litter. I had just happened upon them because my dog was sniffing where they were so I got curious and there they were.

Looks like a caterpillar

and if truly buried 2 inches deep, would have to be a caterpillar that normally is found to at least 2 inches deep. Not certain about Missouri, but that might make it something like a cutworm here. Was there grass growing nearby?

do lthey give that a name?
