The larva looks like Culex pipiens group, but the pupa is a ceratopogonid, probably Dasyhelea. (The exuvium in your other post is the pupal skin of the Culex.)

The part that got deleted is "longer, dark median stripe on thorax"

You are correct, the copula also is phragmitidis. Corrected in the Gallery.
