Phillyrea latifolia, Greece, Lesbos, Agiásos; puparium in the opened mine
front and rear end of the puparium
Buhr (1930a) and later authors describe the puparium as black. This does not apply to the material at hand. Possibly confusion has arisen by the frass with which the puparium is glued in de mine.
The cone-shaped frontal end of the puparium is very remarkable.
