Believed to be the larvae of a diving beetle, but which one please?
Found when pond at RSPB Rainham Marshes emptied following vandalism by local mindless hooligans!
To me it looks much more like the larva of a fly than of a beetle - no legs, no eyes - and thus it is someone elses problem .
I think this is a stratiomyid (a fly) larva. See -
It might be worth searching this forum too because I think they've been on here before.
