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...

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

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 !

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:

Some pictures of Plocaederus basalis (in his book about African timber beetles).

Have a nice day,

(Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures, but I don't have a scanner here )

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

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