I think these are \"tombstone pupae\" or what is left of them after the Eulophid wasps emerged. The little piles of round canon balls are meconium, the waste products from the larvae. They are expelled, I believe, between the larval and pupal stages. http://bugguide.net/node/view/312033/bgimage

This is most possibly a variation of Kuschelina mathematica (Harold 1881)

To me this looks like a typical specimen of Kuschelina bergi (Harold, 1881).
