Bavaria, 2. April
On the edge of a small pond between plant parts, I found these 1-2cm sized pupa.
She moved very slowly.

I think it's from a Diptera.
Does anyone know from which Family / Genus?

Thank you Atylotus!
That's great!

It could be 6 or 7 years ago, where I find one single larvae from these species in the same pond.
