Dear all,

are those larvae, larvae of Stratiomyidae flies?
Found in Lower Saxony, Germany, 15.09.2019 sandy area. They were more than 5cm long, Most of them under water but some crawling outside.
Thanks in advance.

The numerous small White dorsal spots occur in both singularior and longicornis but the anal segment is too long for longicornis. The relatieve small and long anal segment is typical for singularior.

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.
