Seems that Orin was right after all.

My D. tityus hasn't pupated yet but I saw my D. grantii building the pupal cell yesterday. I was unable to observe the larva secreting any body fluids and yet the larva seems to be already going into pre-pupa state right now. Because the substrate was quite dry, some of the partts of pupal cells are eroding away so if the larva doesn't release the body fluid this pupal cell might collapse. I will watch further and see if the larva will do anything about this.
