Pupa has white ground colour with black narrow bands or stripes running lengthwise. It has short, pale golden brown processes embedded in the bands running dorso-laterally, laterally, and ventrally. The pupa is suspended vertically on the host plant. The pupa was not easily seen as the plant is infested by aphids.
