These should be Syrphidae-larvae. The first two look like Syrphus vitripennis in "Sauers Naturf?hrer". Are they, and what about the others ?

My guess would be that all of these larvae are Syrphus-species. Whether it's S. vitripennis, S. ribesii or S. torvus I don't know. They even might all belong to the same species, for Syrphus-larvae are very variable in their colouration. For example, see the pictures of white, red and brown colour forms of S. ribesii in the 'Colour gide to hoverfly larvae' (Rotheray 1993).

Hi. Please delete all photos of E. carrapateira I've uploaded. I did not remember that I already had uploaded that species in particular. Except the pallidifacies (this was not present yet). Thank
