I found this pupa in very dry grass in Courbiac-France the 1. october 2018.
And I think it is Tipula paludosa.

Can you confirm ?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, I think nobodyFrown
Tipulidae pupa are difficult and requires a Microscope. The number of papers on European tipulidae pupa are scarce but I can recommend the one by theowald 1967. Please try it and let us know.

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
