Thread subject: :: Muscidae larva in a hornet's nest

Posted by eklans on 01-11-2023 18:02

I've found this dipteran larva in the detritus of a recently abandoned nest of Vespa crabro amongst dozens of larvae of the hornet rove beetle Quedius dilatatus, 2023-10-28.
It's possibly one of the Muscidae - is there a chance to identify from these photos? Muscina?
