I’m pretty confident that these are A. putaminum, an introduced species on woodchips.
Nice find! Only other Eastern occurrence on MO is in Tennessee, it looks like.

Currently most common on the west coast, Else Vellinga wrote an article about it recently:

Could also check agains A. hortensis, A. sororia and A. amara if you had a specimen to do microscopy on.
