I am conducting research and these insects were found on my biological sample (sections of pig's femora placed in an artificial water setting).

My location: Mississauga, ON

What species of insects are these?

  • $\begingroup$ Were they alive or dead? Do you have photos showing the entire insect larvae (i.e. including not only its head/thorax, but also abdomen and posterior end)? $\endgroup$ – theforestecologist Mar 4 at 17:15
  • $\begingroup$ The small one was alive, but the larger one was dead as the samples were placed in a freezer. $\endgroup$ – user34930 Mar 22 at 21:43
