A small larvae (3-4 mm) from a forest, besides a stream, in South Sweden, at the moss Rhytidiadelphus subpinnatus. Maybe Dioma glabrata or some other Cylindrotomidae?

Looks very much as the moss it was found on - an impressing camouflage! It was a friend who found the larvae when he looked att the moss in the microscope to determine it.

No cylindrotomatidae, I think this is Pleciidae and I think there is only 1 species, Pentethria funebris, but not sure though

Many thanks!

This Picture of the larvae of that species was in Stuke (2004): "Bibionidae and Pleciidae (Diptera: Nematocera) from Lower Saxony and Bremen (Germany)" and it fits very well to this larvae! In Sweden this species is placed under Bibionidae.

Best regards

How are larvae of Bibionidae s. str. and Pleciidae distinguished?

There are no Bibionidae in Scandinavia with larvae like this one, they all look something like the Bibio sp. larvae in this photo (from a garden in South Sweden).

besides the much longer abdominal lobes in Penthetria, the number of respiratory openings in the posterior spiracle is different. Based on described species, Penthetria has 1, Bibio 2 and Dilophus has 3 openings.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
