Dear Jozef
interesting material. I see some similarities with the larvae of Paradelphomyia fuscula (as depicted in fig 65 of Krivosheina & Krivosheina 2011: free download on https://book4you....537/249338) but also with some clear differences. I will have a look again monday when I'm back at the lab and have some remaining papers to check. Everything is strange about this larvae

Dear Jozef
Sorry, I couldn't find anything matching your larvae. As said, the long row of dorsal hairs is like Paradelphomyia (and a bit Hexatoma), but the rest is puzzling me. Perhaps try asking Virginija Podeniene or John Gelhaus, but I think it is a yet undescribed larvae.
