Hello,

I shot some videos underwater last sunday to illustrate life in a puddle.

Here are some views catch from these videos.

The quality is very bad but I begin with this lens totally manual. I think I was out of focus ... Sad

Anyway, I see two kinds of larva :

white one's on the bottom : are they dead ?
red bloody one's, very active ! Could it be Ceratopogonidae, as described in this page ?

I give you the link to this video in which can be seen ostracods ("white ghosts"Wink : https://youtu.be/e9sSdPl0uFc

sorry for the bad quality again ...

Thanks in advance

I only see larvae of Ceratopogonidae. At least the ones with the dark brown head

Hello,

I'm back to get some advice.

The first link above related to the article about Ceratopogonidae tells :

These are most likely Dasyhelea genus



Is it possible to assume this identification from those pictures including the video ? I don't recall that, in this place, occur biting midges, ... may be floricultural behaviors instead of blood drinking are more probable .. ??

Thanks in advance !Smile

Nota bene : I made another video about this larva ...

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