Hello Bob,

Welcome to the site and forum.

What I can see from the pictures, it does not look like a fly larva to me. My suggestion is that it maybe the larva of a chrysidid wasp. I have no literature available to check, but maybe you have.

Thank you for your answer, there are fair chances that it is indeed the
larva of a Chrysidae.

Here is what I found in another nest...

PS : Excuse me please for such a late answer but I have been struggling
with a bad computer problem

It is not a Chrysidae which appeared but......

According to cthirion, it is a Cryptinae, probably Stenarella domator (Scopoli)
