...this is the stage where the larvae/caterpillars undergo a complete transformation within a protective cocoon or woody material.

(i do not know what species of butterflies or moths these pupae belong to)

I am not too sure what had happened here. I think this had been attacked by ants or some other creatures.

Dissertation Advice To me education is a leading out of what is already there in the pupil's soul. To Miss Mackay it is a putting in of something that is not there, and that is not what I call education. I call it intrusion.
