Hello,

This looks like a typical larva for this genus, isn't it ?
Thank you for your help.

July 1st, 2020, Neuch√Ętel, Switzerland, at night on a log in the forest.
Size: 4.5 mm

Hi Pierre, I think you are right with Zabrachia and I think it's tenella:
analsegment with 4 pairs of equally long bristles
1st thoracial segment with 3 pairs of anteriordorsal and 2 pairs of dorsal bristles (if I count right) - see Beuk, 1990, ENT. BER., AMST. 50 (8): 101-106.

Greetings, Eric

Great, thanks a lot Eric !
I didn't expect an ID at species level was possible here, and yet...
