We are quite certain we have a similar looking hanging pupa in our archives, but we cannot remember its identity this morning. We are currently very pressed for time, so we are posting your image as unidentified and we hope one of our readers will be able to provide a comment with its identity.
Update: September 17, 2018: Thanks to comments from both Cesar Crash and Karl, we are now able to link to another Ichneumon pupa in our archives.
