Not sure what to make out of it, but Diptera would be my first guess. Found under a rotting log, in central Germany, late March

Hi Lorin, I think it is! And it looks very much like Phronia conformis:

and of course here:

(I've started with Handbooks for the Identification of British Insects
Vol. 10, Part 14, FigsIndex - Fig 83)

Greetings, Eric

Great, thanks a lot Eric!
I might leave it at genus level, as I doubt enough is known about how the different species differ in their larval stages.
