I'd really like an ID for this pupa (Brassolis sp.). I found 10 of these browns pupae, all were parasitized. I caught one and brought to my house. This happened on Thursday. On Friday morning, I woke up with a lot of tiny yellow wasps in the glass of my bedroom window. They had just emerged from the pupa and was drying its wings. I opened the window and flew into the yard. They are so small and adorable, I could still see some out there, drying his wings, and photographed one in my hand. Sorry, pupa, I'm happy to see this. Life, sometimes, is magic, depends on how you look at things.
