Collected from bird nest-box occupied by Great Tit. Could it be Mycetophilidae?

Mycetophilidae do not form a puparium, pupating outside of the last larval exuvia. As a result, legs, wings, and head sheaths are distinct. The pupae you have photographed here belong to a family of Calyptratae or Acalyptratae.
