Hi there! Is there someone who can identify this pupa (i guess it's pupa and not larva anymore)?

Anymore information, like size, substrate, etc.?

I should measure it again, but I guess around 3 mm. Found in a mushroom (maybe Trametes) in Belgium last week.

It's 6-7mm apparently

See Plachter, 1979, "The Immature stages of the Fungus-Gnats"
Only Ditomyiidae have either such a cylindrical body or such a posteriorly tucked head among depicted Sciaroidea.
Between Ditomyia and Symmerus, the prothoracic horns resemble those of Ditomyia closely.
