Tipulidae Cranefly Larva - Tipulidae Cranefly Larva
Whilst most adult Tipulid Craneflies are readily identifiable, the larval stage is not well documented and even with a specimen available, it is unlikely that you would find an expert with the skills and reference materials to identify it to species level. Our aim therefore is to illustrate a Tipulidae Cranefly larva just to inform users of the general appearance.
Under stones and logs etc. especially in damp places. Sometimes infest lawns.
Spring and summer.
