Patočka & Turčáni (2005a) state that in the pupa the spinulation of the anterior half of the abdominal segments is much coarser than in the posterior half. This is not in agreement with the material shown above, which voids the distinction they made with the pupa of Coptotriche heinemanni.

Thanks to Rob Edmunds, who collected and donated the material.
