This work presents the first descriptions of the pupal morphology of five species of western Palaearctic clearwing moths Bembecia abromeiti Kallies Riefenstahl, 2000, B. handiensis (Rämisch, 1997), B. lomatiaeformis (Lederer, 1853), B. psoraleae Bartsch Bettag, 1997, and B. vulcanica (Pinker, 1969) in the genus Bembecia-subgroup ichneumoniformis. The main morphological features are described and illustrated with photographs and line drawings. Diagnostic characters, as well a key for the determination of pupae of the studied species and related taxa, Bembecia ichneumoniformis (Denis Schiffermüler, 1775) and B. albanensis (Rebel, 1918) are presented.
