I've found this larvae in the same day and zone where are fotographed these flies:

I thinks that almost sure is the larvae of one of these two sea fly species, but which one?

This looks more like a chironomid larva, rather than a dolichopodid or canaceid. There are a couple of marine species it could be.

More species in the same area of three or four meters???
This is diversity! Well, Chironomidae at the moment...
Thanks a lot....

Can diptera larvae live in sea water? This one is floating in the surface, but I thinks that most probably failed to the water from the algae of the rocks... only sometimes covered with the sea water...
