Seen between two leaves of a Citrus, this Ogcodes didn't move during at least 15 hours.

Is the transparent structure behind it its puparium?
Is the black and shining string its meconium?

It looks very similar to this Ogcodes reginae I found in the same garden and at the same period 10 years ago. So is this specimen a probable Ogcodes reginae too?

Yes, looks like reginar. However, my opinion is that reginae is simply the female of varius.

Thank you Theo.
What about the potential puparium and meconium?

No idea.
