Thread subject: Diptera.info :: large Nematocera pupa in tree stump

Wriggling pupa found under bark in stump of Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii).
It is rather large: 13 mm long. Covered with mites.

Because of its size, i thought it might be Bibionidae, but i don't know if these occur in decaying wood at all. I will try to rear it.

Any suggestions?
