In English we have a word "wriggler" for a larva of Culicidae and "tumbler" for a pupa. In Chinese one can say 孑孓 (jiéjué) for a mosquito larva.

What other terms do diptera.info users have in their own languages?

would be nice to have, but I am not aware there are expressions in German for these stages.
Cheers, Lorin

All requests are from the urban area of Vienna, if not otherwise stated.

My Diptera observations (and other living forms) can be found here, and corrections or comments over there would also be appreciated.

There are no vernacular names for these stages in The Netherlands. The family Culicidae are 'steekmuggen', so larvae and pupae would simply be 'steekmug larven' and 'steekmug poppen'. Anopheles we usually name 'malariamuggen' but also for all stages ('larven van malariamuggen' and 'poppen van malariamuggen'Wink.

Are gusarapo and gusarapa the same?
