Ditaxis biseriata pupa

Pupae seemed to be emerging from the ground and crawling to the nearest tree. I never actually saw one come from the ground, but I did have them climb up my tripod and saw smaller individuals that never made it up a tree but rather moulted on the ground (a likely less-favourable position to be in).
