Unidentifiable Chrysalis/Shell

Asked November 6, 2017, 5:01 PM EST

My student found this chrysalis or shell on a tree in her yard. * Early September in Minnesota *Walnut Tree (Maybe) On a low branch *In grass cocoon attached by silky white thread * About half an inch long, with the cocoon being about an inch and a half * It also appeared to have six legs. My student and I were thinking its the remains of a poorly developed worm or caterpillar.

Unfortunately I am unable to do any identification with the photo or description given. If you have photographs that include the whole chrysalis and different sides of it I may be able to.
