Sorry for the late reply, dear Ton, I am on vacation.
As the first picture shows, the larvae of Stratiomys and of Odontomyia are of the same size and measure 3 cm at least. So O. ornata should be the right choice.
As to the eggs, those from Stratiomys shown in https://www.makro...ongicornis seem to be bigger indeed. So we won't find out who laid them. No problem!
Many thanks, Claudia aka Sundew
