Strange pupa, but I think this would be some species of Chironomidae. My first idea was perhaps Boreoheptagyia pupa, but not sure though. Do you happen to have or provide us, with a detailed photo of the anal segment(s) in dorsal view?

no Boreoheptagyia but closer to Buchonomyia. I have added a picture from the pupa taken from Seather in Wiederholm (1986) to show the similarity.

Dear Atylotus,

Thank you very much. Yes, it seems to be Buchonomyia, based on the figures and description, interesting record!!
