What comes into my head is Stratiomyidae (soldier flies) - thei larvae are quite similar. But lets wait for other opinions Wink

Definitely, I think it is one of the Sarginae with Microchrysa and Chloromyia as most likely candidates (former has the best chances I think) but I cannot rule out Sargus or Beridinae (Beris or Chorisops) on the basis of this picture.

Yes, I have once reared Beris larvae that looked like this, maybe 8 mm long. Louis

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
