Seen between two leaves of a Citrus, this Ogcodes didn't move during at least 15 hours.
H. Dumas : France : La Ciotat : 13600 : 27/06/2021
Altitude : NR - Taille : 5 mm
Réf. : 285647

Is the transparent structure behind it its puparium?
Is the black and shining string its meconium?

It looks very similar to this Ogcodes reginae I found in the same garden and at the same period 10 years ago. So is this specimen a probable Ogcodes reginae too?

Yes, looks like reginar. However, my opinion is that reginae is simply the female of varius.

Thank you Theo.
What about the potential puparium and meconium?
