Wow, an almost perfect picture for identification! It's a pupa of an Asilid fly = robberfly.

When submitting photos for identification please add all relevant additional information you have. Where and when was the specimen found? How did it behave? Size? This will often help us solve otherwise impossible casesCool

Pupa was collected near Irkutsk in soil, as I remember in July. Picture obtained from flatbed scanner. I am not shure this information halp for identification. Anyway, it's important for me to know that it is Asilidae. Many thanks for support.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
