Asilid pupal case

Asilid pupal case
Spring Green Preserve SNA, Sauk County, Wisconsin, USA
August 1, 2010
I saw 6-7 of these poking up out of the sandy path this day. I think it might be Proctacanthus due to the large size and the fact that I saw a couple of freshly emerged adults of what I believed to be Proctacanthus on the ground a way up the trail. Unfortunately my camera's batteries died before I could snap some shots of those adults.

Habitat is sandy prairie/oak savanna.

Adding to guide because it shows emergence from one of the typical larval development microhabitats (not already in guide).

Please frass if not needed.
