Nice!
One of these days we will unravel all these syrphid larvae and pupae with this kind of work. Read the on-line book referenced on the info page "Unidentified Syrphid larvae" and you will learn more than you ever wanted to know about them.

Nice work (again)!
I've added thumbnails to the page of known syrphid larvae and pupae.
