Hello everyone!
I collected this larvae from a bromeliad (phytotelmata) in a cloud forest (aprox. 2000 meters above sea level) in Ecuador. Could someone please clarify if it is indeed a Thaumaleidae larvae? Maybe even the genus?
Thank you for your help!

No picture, but I suspect Ceratopogonidae is more likely.

I agree with Tony. This is no Thaumalaeidae, but a Ceratopogonidae, something like Forcipomyia or Atrichopogon or similar genera.

Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
