Found this larvae when collecting with a pondnet in The Netherlands (Korendijkse slikken, 22.iv.2021). It was obviously a Cecidomyiidae (gall midge) but I was wondering if it can be identified to a lower level. It was very close to Dicerura in Mamaev & Krivosheina (1965: 136-138) for it has the stigma on elongated tubes and there is extra pair of elongated papillae in between with terminal spines. As the genus has not been reported from the Netherlands, maybe some other genus may be involved here. And perhaps a genus with (semi-) aquatic mode of life?
Suggestions are welcome.
