Best I can suggest is an atypical Atrichopogon (Ceratopogonidae)

It reminds me of some Fannia larvae. They are not aquatic.

Collected a few in the mountain stream. Potentially on the edge of the waterline

I'd say the head capsule was too well formed to be Fannia.
There are some pictures of Atrichopogon here - http://blog.naver...tegoryNo=0 - which show similar medio-lateral tufts of hooked setae.

I agree with Atrichopogon or similar genera. I guess no Forcipomyia. The habitus and the Hypognathous head seems typical to me.

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.
