Hi! The weirdness of this situation compelled me to look online for information. This tiny little creature was found in the cistern water of a toilet that had been unflushed for a while. I apologise profusely for the blurry nature of the photos but as you can see from the mm markers it is a tiny little thing, and I took its photo through a magnifying glass with my phone. Thank you 🙂

Dear Curiously Confused,
This looks like an aquatic Mosquito larva or pupa, or some other immature stage of a Fly to us, so finding it in an unused toilet makes sense, but it is puzzling there was only one. The Department of Medical Entomology site has some images.
