Can anyone help me to identify this larva of Ephydridae?
These larvae were found associated with the green algae (Ulva fasciata) in the fouling community, these algal mate covered the coastal natural rocks in El-Mex area, west of Alexandria city; Egyptian Mediterranean coast. Waters of sampling site with salinity of 22-24 ‰, moderately exposed area, and with shallow depth.

Please look at the attached photo
I will attach another photos in reply.
