I found this chrysalis buried under my leaves today and I’m not sure exactly what it is…could be a regal moth, imperial moth, black witch moth or dozens of other types of moths. I’m sure its a moth though. Is there any insight you could give me on what this actually could be?

Dear A. Boger,
Because of the spiny tip on the abdomen, we believe this is an Imperial Moth Pupa, and you can verify our suspicion on BugGuide.
