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?

Jewell699, you should post it in the forum, not submit it for the gallery.

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.
