Richard Lewington asked me to post his photo here and inquire whether anyone knows what kind of larva it is. I am assuming it is dipteran :) It was found quite recently (I think October) in southern England.

Hello,

Looking in the Rotheray, Volucella inanis could be a candidate.

Certainly looks just like the inanis larvae I've seen

Yes, it's just like the larvae identified for me last year as Volucella inanis.
