  Pupa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Most butterfly pupae are attached to a surface by a Velcro-like arrangement of a silken pad spun by the caterpillar and a set of hooks (cremaster) at the tip of the pupal abdomen.
Moth pupae are usually dark in color and are usually formed in underground cells, loose in the soil, or in a silken cocoon spun by the caterpillar, sometimes suspended from a twig or concealed in the leaf litter.
Insects emerge (eclose) from the pupa by splitting the pupal case, and the whole process of pupation is controlled by the insect's hormones.

The pupa is a resting stage in which the insect is transformed into an adult.
At the end of the pupa stage, the integument is shed and the imago, or adult form, emerges.
Pupae of moths usually have an additional outer covering, called a cocoon, built by the larva (called a caterpillar) just before it enters the pupa stage.

Pupa is nice and has speedy combos also her stage which is the same as Pepe's is a nice alternaive to all the other high paced stages in ROTD I give Pupa overall a (9.2) out of ten because she's a fresh young new design to the ROTD Cast.
Although Pupa's design might come off to others as simply being Ghettho I like her character a lot,she a nice character to complement Pepe to be honest although they don't really seem to be ROTD material they fit into the game rather nicely.

Pupae are much less mobile than larvae or adults, but they often exhibit sudden movements if they are disturbed.

Abstract: Pupa is a low-latency communication system that provides the same quality of message delivery as TCP but is designed specifically for a parallel computing cluster connected by a 100 Mbits/sec Fast Ethernet.
The implementation has been operational for over a year, and several systems have been built on top of Pupa, including a compiler-directed distributed shared virtual memory system, Locust, and a parallel multimedia index server, PAMIS.
In [58] an excellent decrease (44) in latency obtained with the fast interrupt path optimization is shown.
