I have a large stratiomyid larva which I think is Stratiomys but possibly not full grown. What do they eat, please? I've put it with some filamentous alga and Zannichellia in very shallow water from the brackish pool it was in, but not seen any sign of it feeding. It just wanders around the pot. It has some damp soil too. Is this what it needs for pupation?

Hello, I'm looking for literature on chironomid larvae that are able to survive after being entrapped in ice for at least several days . So far I've only found literature on Eretmoptera murphy
