Hallo!
last november I found this living being in damp leaf litter of acer campestris. It is about 3mm (?) long. It glides on the wet underside of the leaf and seams to graze there like a nano seacow. The pines on both sides of every segment have a function in the movement of the animal. Gisela Merkel-Wallner in the insektenfotos.de/forum wonders if it was a larva of stratiomyidae.
I myself have no idea, but would be veery interested in yours!
Have a nice day Maja

Certainly the larva of soldier fly. Possibly a species of Beris.

I cannot say yes or no now. The fly is Sargus bipunctatus but I am not certain if its larvae have such long setae. I would have to check my books at home.

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.
