These are typical ephydrid pupae - (not Lispe) - difficult to be sure of the genus, but I think it's most likley to be Scatella if you are finding them in large numbers. Do please try to rear some and keep the pupae and adults.

Thanks Tpny. But the adult looks like very much Ephydridae, but in the forum said me to be Lispe tentaculata. Sorry, anyone collected, so I can't breed the adults...

Breathing tube of these pupae is a little longer than in typical Scatella (Ephydridae). Resemble Parydra very much. If the size of the pupae (without breathing tube) is about 6-9 mm it may be Parydra. Sometimes it may be useful to collect imagoes if you see them at the moment when you are collecting larvae. It may be of the same species. One of the common species of Parydra in Spain - P. coarctata.
