Reminds me on something determined as diptera (https://diptera.i..._id=105495) a day or so ago. Fresh water stream, under stone. No legs AFAIK.
AFAIK - does not come up for air. Slovenia. ?

Try using Theowald 1967 for larval identification
I think this would also be Tipula as most other genera, including Nephrotoma, are more or less terrestrial

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
