I found this Stratiomyidae larvae (Rajolins river, Beuda, Girona, Spain, UTM31T DG7477, 380 m., 5-5-2012) about 10 mm long with a characteristic "X" pattern on the dorsum. Is it a diagnostic of a few genera?? It looks like Odontomyia. This place was very near the first spanish locality for Lasiopa tsacasi.

Looks as a typical Oxycera sp.
elongated prothoracic spiracles, posterior spiracular opening with ventral emargination.
I'm sorry, but I do not know the larvae of Lasiopa
definitely not Odontomyia or Stratiomys or any other aquatic stratiomyd stage.
edit: I just found out that the larva of Lasiopa villosa resembles Nemoteles, so......

I might add that this is a great resource and I am really thankful for all the members help.

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
