Neoplocaederus ferrugineus
Collected around 8 pupae and have started emerging (so far 3 are into adults)... it was my first experience to find this huge pupae with calcareous shell...

Does anybody know of references where Lepturinae have been reported to form similar pupal sells?

Hi Sangamesh,

Sorry to bother you here, but I cannot reach you via your email adress which does not seems to work.

I'm currently writting a book about beetles, and I would like to know if perhaps I could reuse your picture to illustrate this peculiar behavior ?
Can you contact me by mail?

Thanks a lot,
POM

P.S.: For the others: this post is only temporary, I'll delete it after

Hi all,

For those interested in these weird way of pupation, I found in a book about longhorned beetles larvae (E.A.J. Duffy. 1952 - A monograph of the immature stages of British and imported timber beetles (Cerambycidae), 311 p.) with an explanation around those calcareous cocoons:

That's fantastic !

It's very interesting, thanks for sharing it with us.

So I guess, on that website when you go to "beetles/Cerambycidae" and then in "Neoplocaederus carolii", It might be also pupation chambers. I was guessing what it was for a long time !

nice observation !

Going through the type pict given in this publication... I'm falling into confusion to decide...here i give better male and female pict for comparison...

Yes! I found them around root zone, pupae were attached to tree trunk below the soil... interestingly grubs were oozing some liquid... find below the images
