I found this larva in a forest - is the photo sufficient to say which family - genus it might be? Found on Feb. 7, 2022 in Göttingen, Lower Saxony (Germany).

Thanks for your help

Gerrit Oehm attached the following image:

Genera of Bibionidae can be separated by a close look at the posterior spiracles. See Manual of Nearctic Diptera volume 1 page 222. I do not see enough here to make a guess.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
