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.

Can you somehow rule out S. longicornis?

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.
