pupariumtion

Not difficult to check but I am reassured by Rob's presence.
I read that " larva leaves the mine before pupariumtion" http://www.ukflymines.co.uk/Flies/Agromyza_alnivora.php and wondered why pupation is not a good enough word!

Bless you Robert, I dropped a mail on Brian Pitkin yesterday! I am an admireer of his pages.
It's not just proof-readers, it's everyone who visits and doesn't notice.
