That is a photo of a Colorado Beetle Larva. This is misleading since it is the second search on google for, "Labybug pupae" Here's some more examples of Colorado Beetle Larva: https://www.google.com/search?q=Colorado+beetle+larva&tbm=isch

This is not a ladybug pupa, this is a Colorado beetle! Y'know, the ones that eat your potatoes and tomatoes, aubergines... Not a gardener's friend!

I think that is a Colorado Potato Beetle larva - not a lady bug pupa
