Thread subject: :: Larva ???

Posted by dipdip on 17-02-2006 22:25

last november I found this living being in damp leaf litter of acer campestris. It is about 3mm (?) long. It glides on the wet underside of the leaf and seams to graze there like a nano seacow. The pines on both sides of every segment have a function in the movement of the animal. Gisela Merkel-Wallner in the wonders if it was a larva of stratiomyidae.
I myself have no idea, but would be veery interested in yours!
Have a nice day Maja
