Yesterday. La Pe?a, Huesca, Aragon, Spain. Pre-Pyrenees. Habitat: very very very low water (but not from last rain, because have some aquatic plants in the most deep zones) at side of the road. Burned pine forest, priarie. Size: about 4 cm long.

I guess it is a cranefly and probably a Pedicia, only on the grounds that similar looking larvae in Britain are usually Pedicia rivosa.

I'd agree with John on this - the general appearance and habitat are just right.

Pedicia rivosa is not cited for Iberian Peninsula. Are cited Pedicia occulta, Pedicia littoralis and Pedicia straminea. Also genus Dicranota, Tricyphona and Ula cited. What could be?

Ithink the best we can do is to say Pedicia species.
