Thread subject: :: Diptera Larva

There was an overflow of a small creek with a plastic thing attached to it, so that it would directly flow into some channel alongside the road. The plastic thing was grown in by some bacterial biofilm. The water on the biofilm was very thin, maybe thinner than the larva. The water was flowing slowly. To be honest id did not look like a very eutrophic environment, but the larva might have been washed down from the creak, which might have contained some more plant material.

Possibly it is not important, but this fly was around in large numbers:

I do not really know what kind of fly this is.
