An oddity – Green hoverfly larvae
Found in a plastic bucket full of water
The larvae of this hoverfly species, Austalis copiosa, are called rat-tailed maggots. The ‘tail’ is actually a tube that acts like a long snorkel which allows the maggot to breathe while living in stagnant water; the type of smelly water you sometimes find in drains and gutters. The tube is telescopic and can be many times the length of the maggot when fully extended.
