Is it possible to identify this larva, found under a strain, very pretty by the way!

Difficult to say without a mooie detailed photo of the anal end. It is a tipulidae, not limoniidae.

Do not know what a strain is, but my best guess would be Tanyptera atrata

Thank you very much Atylotus, it is not a question of strain, but of tree stump, the French word being the same (souche), the translator had a bug ...
thanks again

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.
