Ladybug larvae? - Chilocorus

Ladybug larvae? - Chilocorus
Naples, Southwest FL in Collier County, Florida, USA
August 27, 2005
I have seen Chilocorus stigma adult and recognizable larvae from photos, but these I was not sure of. Also larvae? In a few cases the adult ladybugs were on top of these.

Beetle pupae.
These are pupae, enclosed in the last larval skin. Chilocorus does indeed follow that pattern, but I think these may be either Mexican bean beetle (also a coccinellid), or some kind of leaf beetle.

If someone knows,
maybe you can comment on this one too
