Can anyone help with the diptera featured in the photos – I’m stumped!!!
They have mandibles, spiracles, spikes, but no lobes, no legs or prolegs.
They came from a fresh water site in the north west of Scotland.
I wonder if they're early stage bibionid larvae. Larger ones are brown but maybe when they're young they're paler. Anyway, that's just a suggestion.
