Hello,

This puparium was found still attached to the remains of a caterpillar inside its silky cocoon weaved between leaves of Dimorphotheca sp:

7 mm; ii.2017; La Ciotat (France 13)

The "posterior spiracular process" (is it right?):

Unfortunatly the puparium was already open and empty so I didn't see the imago.
Is Cyclorrhapha right?
Is an identification of its family possible?

Using Greene, C. T. (1922). illustrated synopsis of the puparia of 100 muscoid flies (Diptera), the closest I get to is Plagia americana Van der Wulp.
I suspect the host to be Autographa gamma (Noctuidae).

- Plagia americana Van der Wulp is a synonym of Voria ruralis (Fallen, 1810) which is the valid name now; right?
- What do you think about this hypothesis?

I think min Xanthempis both do, in other subgenera the males hunt and females eat.

Nice occur on the Dutch television Paul!

In Dutch some would use it as plural, for 'exemplaar' (exemplar or specimen). Ten exx. then is ten specimens.

Thanks Phil I am thinking exuviae but I can't find the abbrev. so perhaps so
