God job!
I suspect that it could be Liriomyza (don't quote me). I think that I could include this life cycle on the info page, but I will wait until it is IDed. If I forget, please remind me again in a while.
BTW, I learned that flies have puparia (puparium, singular); the pupae are inside the last larval skin.

 
Thank you
This was an easy one, compared with rearing moths, four months from eggs to the first adult--but the garbanzo plant also has geometrid eggs . . .

I'll change "pupa" if I need to. Is it incorrect to say a photo of the brown thing shows a pupa? We say "I saw my friend Harvey today" even if Harvey was dressed when we spotted him. But maybe a caption like "Pupa on leaf" is more like saying "I saw the president today" when we merely walked past the White House.

 
Puparium
It is a puparium, but don't let it bother you.

 
I can't help it
Bothered; fixed.
