Thread subject: :: Bibionid Larva

Posted by Gerrit Oehm on 09-02-2024 11:35

I found this larva in a forest - is the photo sufficient to say which family - genus it might be? Found on Feb. 7, 2022 in Göttingen, Lower Saxony (Germany).

Thanks for your help

Genera of Bibionidae can be separated by a close look at the posterior spiracles. See Manual of Nearctic Diptera volume 1 page 222. I do not see enough here to make a guess.

Well,it is a forest, isn’t it ?
So it is not Dilophus….
