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.

Your images don't show. Perhaps check the FAQ? https://diptera.i...p?cat_id=2

@Paul Beuk Thanks mate!! Best wishes!

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

17.07.19 19:37
Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

16.07.19 13:31
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
