Description: This one was discovered in algae blob which was taken from shore of standing water inside blind stream branch of artificial meanders . We are not 100% sure with Bezzia genus , whole picture of animal doesn't exist. I was cca 2 cm long larva, it has light brown color. Also, species determination was little bit funny, terminal part of animal catched my eyes faster than head part, so I thinked that I look for head. I burned few hours in crazy googling because of that mistake. We hate you, nature.
