Default Unknown Pest Please help.

Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone has come across this pest before.

I have seen mealy,aphids, thrips grubs, caterpillars, borers, leaf miners, but not this..


Any identification or sources I can find this in?

it looks like a Colorado Potato Beetle pupae but its not that. It may be something closely related.


any help would be great

I don't know if I should worry about this.

Agree it's a pupae.
Put it in a closed jar and see what hatches.
