Hi,

These photos were shared on a facebook group about portuguese Diptera. I have no idea what this is, so I asked the photographer for permission to share the photos here. This specimen appeared in a box where a cricket nymph was being reared. The cricket was dead, but without an apparent exit hole. I'm not sure if it is a dipteran larva, those leg-like appendages don't seem right. What do you think it could be?

Better check out larvae of Ripiphoridae (Coleoptera), then.

Thank you Paul! It looks a good bet! With luck we will get an adult so we can be sure. Smile
