critter on my chilli

(1/1)

Joolieeee:
Please could someone identify this critter on my chilli? I've been removing them, but wondered what they are, and if my plant is doomed or ok

Vinlander:
OK. I'm no expert but since nobody else has, I'll say the obvious - it looks more like a maggot than a caterpillar so it might become a fly - the question is why it ended up living in your plant. Is it a pest or just lost?

By now you should know if it is a problem - hopefully not.

Cheers

saddad:
Looks like a lacewing pupae to me, leave it alone and it will have gone in a day or two.

pumpkinlover:
Unless evidence to the contarary it does look like a lacewing pupae and one of the good guys.

Vinlander:
Are they really that small? (I'm still assuming that's some kind of J-cloth - on the other hand it could be a beach towel, so - are they really that big?).

Sorry, watching too much Buffy at the moment - great show but encourages snappy/snippy juvenile dialogue.

Cheers.
