Synchroidae - Synchroa punctata
Meredith, Belknap County, New Hampshire, USA
Didn't measure this pupa, which was the first to pupate. Others are still in larva stage. Noticed this pupa on or about Jan. 20 and photographed it Jan. 23, 2007. After photographing it I accidentally dropped it on the floor and worried that it would die or suffer deformity as a result. The latter turned out to be the case.
