Hi Ken

No photo attached as far as I can see. If a larva I fear it is unlikely than an ID will be possible - I cannot do larvae at all - Graham Rotheray might

Hi Roger - pic is in the members photos.......
I take your point - I also posted this on WAB, and from there got the Dipterists forum 1993 Dipterists digest by Graham Rotheray PDF for these saved, which is pretty good and appears to lead to E tenax, but I wouldn't rule out E pertinax as that isn't mentioned .
I found this in my new pond, but I had filled it with some rainwater I had left out in an old bucket for this purpose only a few weeks ago, so must have come from there.
It was lit nicely in sun - bit of a shock after the dark bucket I suspect - and I have some more shots of it.
Cheers
Ken

Hi Ken

If rainwater in an old bucket then quite possibly Myathroa florea - all look very similar!
