Microvelia larva 29-06-2005
Microvelia larva

A bulgy, ribbed little pellet this larva. No more than a running dot, that you easily loose sight of, even at close range. I do not know to which Microvelia species this larva belongs, I do know however that it was sitting near an adult Microvelia reticulata. Below a picture of a somewhat older larva, unfortunately the top isn't quite sharp depicted.

At last another two, not very clear, pictures of Microvelia larvae on a brook in the east of the Netherlands, to show the bulgy appearance. The larva on the right picture is hanging from a piece of wood just above the water with its right legs, that's why the posture seems a bit peculiar.
