Hi Jorge,

thanks for that link.
probably is the same, will be great to have the name also for the pupa. i will change the title maybe Theo will be attracted.

this is the typical form of that species pupa, or more or less general for Tachinidae?

again thanks,

I have the same doubt. Not sure, I only saw just a few Tachinidae pupae.
I think without rearing the pupa it will be very hard (if not impossible) to know the right species.

I've been rearing some tachinids from their hosts and the pupae I observed were different from the one you have.
