Well, you will next time.
Loxocera is very typical, some species are much smaller though.
The only real pitfall might be Lauxania, with has a very elongated third antennal segment as well. Lauxania is quite black, if I remember properly.

The species shown in the picture is our most common (and larger) one:
Loxocera albiseta.

Larvae in Juncus. So not uncommon, but easily overlooked.
