Thread subject: :: larvae Phoridae on Aeshna isoceles?

Posted by Robert Heemskerk on 16-07-2021 22:12

From a friend I got a box with a dead Aeshna isoceles in it.
This afternoon I discoverd soms larvae in the box and some pupae.

These are Phoridae I think?

What is the relation with the dragonfly?

Also in the box I found 3 little dead ants, this could also a possible explination for these Phoridae larvae?

I like to know if there is a relation between these.

greeting Robert
