If it is a aquatic pupa, could be Empididae pupa
just a proposal : Clinocera stagnalis pupa ?;f=false p 458

looks more like Chironomidae, subfamily Orthocladiinae, genus Limnopyes, but I have to check the genus with Langton tomorrow when I'm back in the lab. There are some Orthocladiinae genera with these long spines.
