Bloody-nosed beetle Pupa

Bloody-nosed beetle Pupa

Observation - Bloody-nosed beetle Pupa - UK and Ireland. Description: Several of these large beetle pupae clinging to Goosegrass stems (the larval food of Bloody-nosed beetles), and based on size, around 15mm, I think these must be T. tenebricosa not goettingensis.
