This week's fun case was generously donated by Dr. José Poloni, one of my Twitter buddies (@JoseTesser). The object below was found in the undergarments of a 35 year-old woman. No other history is provided. What's the identification? How would you sign this case out?

Dipteran fly pupa, possibly a fruit fly pupa (Drosophilidae); not a human parasite.
