That was a change in the keyboard layout: Punto Switcher seems to be guilty :) Alexandr, thanks, I'll correct it in a sec :)

The collector's surname seems misnoted: leg. V. I. Feoktistov :))

"Male pupa" would sound more natural though the comma autosuggestion messed it up (

That comma was indeed neither here not there :)

Please don't touch with bare hands chrysalises and larvae of Lasiocampidae and Lymantriidae. This may turn out quite bad.
Larva has small hairs which it later wreathe in chrysalis. I've just taken such a chrysalis and the hairs stuck in my skin. I washed it thoroughly water and soap, not sure what's gonna be. Here's some info about Lasiocampidae hairs: http://www.bumblebee.org/invertebrates/Lepidoptera9.htm. Can cause irritation.
