Hi, I was planting some Golden Scotch Moss today and a odd inspect larva fell out of one of the soil when I was planting the moss. I'm a novice when it comes to gardening and would greatly appreciate if you can possibly help identify what type of larva this is? I was thinking perhaps a wasp larva but when I looked up images it doesn't seem to match the color or shape. I'm hoping this is not a "killer hornet"...

Its the pupae of a moth, maybe a Hornworm.
