Hello!

I found this 10-15 mm long larva tonight in 2 m height in moss on the cherry tree in our garden (Ostwestfalen/Germany). Am I right, when I assume that it belongs somewhere near Tipulidae? Thanks!

Yes, it is a crane fly larva. Based on the six visible spiracular disc lobes indicates it is in the family Tipulidae. Also there are no long hairs around the lobes indicates a terrestrial species. Wish I knew which species this beauty turns into.

Thanks a lot for your explanations! I was very surprised to find it high in a tree...
Best regards,

This is indeed larva of Tipulidae and to be more precise - Tipula subgenus Savtchenkia, but it is impossible to give a species name...
