I have with me some pupae of parasitoid flies (I think they are all tachinids).
One of them is very strange to me. Unlike the others, it has a curvature. Is it possible to tell if it belongs to a different group from the others? (the host of the "strange" pupa is a larva of Acronicta tridens).
Thank you

Associated with Acronicta tridens are Compsilura concinnata, Nilea hortulana, Phebellia glauca and probably others ...

Thank you crexSmile

The pupa of Compsilura concinnata doesn't seem to be identical to that of the 1st photo...

Someone said, here in diptera.info, that you are always thinking about food, and that is trueGrinGrin

Yes, a common hesperiid. Until now I never managed for a larva to turn into a pupa (the parasitoids are relentlessSad).

You find the strangest things on youtubeShock

A while ago my brother ate a calliphorid fly (Lucilia sp. I think). He was running, and while gasping for air, the fly just came inGrin.
Quoting my brother: "It was a repulsive experience but it didn't have any taste".
