I found these nymphs/larvae and the pupa under birch bark on a cut down tree together with beetles of the species Bitoma crenata. Someone suggested they are diptera. I also found a small diptera, but didn't get a good shoot of that. It was rather small.

Top: probably ceratopogonid pupae.
Bottom: probably lonchaeid pupa.
Rear them and send them over. Pfft
