Photographed yesterday in Zhejiang China. I'm sure one is definitely the larva of a certain mosquito but I'm not sure about the other. They were observed together.

Is this also the larva of a certain mosquito like the above one?

The first image shows a larva, the 2nd a pupa - probably of the same Culicidae-species.

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
