The compact, often protected, resting stage of an insect preceding the adult stage (bollworms overwinter in the pupal stage under the soil surface).
The intermediate stage of vampirification, during which the protégé metamorphoses into the new form, with significant changes to heart, kidneys, blood vessels, and other organs, to accomodate a very different metabolism.
Insects go through a number of different life stages. At the end of the final larval stage, the once softbodied larva develops a hard outer shell and becomes a pupa. Inside the insect begins reforming itself from the breakdown and rearrangement of larval tissue. It is growing eyes, wings, and legs. When it emerges from the pupa, it will be an adult insect.
(pl. Pupæ)—The second stage in the development of an insect, from which it emerges in the perfect (winged) reproductive form. In most insects the pupal stage is passed in perfect repose. The chrysalis is the pupal state of butterflies. 178

The third life stage of a butterfly in which caterpillars transform to adults.
(plural: pupae): Usually inactive developmental stage between the caterpillar and the adult (known as the chrysalis in butterflies).
Sub-surface larval stage of aquatic insect development.
One of the phases in the life cycle of some insects, such as moths, flies, beetles, wasps, and bees. It is the intermediate stage between the larva and the adult. Insect pupae do not feed.

Non-feeding, inactive stage between larvae and adult in insects.
stage between larva and adult in insects with complete metamorphosis(resting stage)
The inactive stage in the metamorphosis of many insects, following the larval stage and preceding the adult form.
(plural pupae): The inactive stage in the life history of certain insects during which the larva undergoes a gradual reor-ganization of its tissues in the process of becoming an adult. See also Metamorphosis.
The third stage in the development of the bee during which it is inactive and sealed in its cocoon; the organs of the sealed in its cocoon; the organs of the larva are replaced by those which will be used as an adult.
The 'chrysalis' or third stage in the life of many insects (between the larval and adult stages), often surrounded by a silk cocoon, and in which the major metamorphosis from larva to adult occurs (plural: pupae).

the stage when the larva (caterpillar) is turning into an adult butterfly or moth.
The third stage in the lepidopteran life cycle. Although seemingly quiet as seen externally, the pupa is busily destroying most of its larval cells and replacing them by reproduction of relatively few cells that had no function in the larva. Thus, a nearly complete reconfiguration of the animal occurs beneath the pupal cuticle, to make the adult body.

It is outwardly inactive, but a lot is going on inside; the caterpillar is changing into a butterfly. The pupa stage lasts from a few days to many months (some butterflies overwinter in the pupa stage, and the adult emerges in the spring).
The inactive stage of insects during which the larva transforms into the adult form, completing its metamorphosis.
