Your letter to the bugman: Hi,
Whilst on holiday in France a couple of years ago we visited the salt pans I’ve located above. Whilst there we found what we think is a beetle larvae that the salt seller told us lived in the salt. Any ideas what it is? the lady told us that they are “prehistoric”.
How you want your letter signed: Cheers, Martin & Ruth
Dear Martin and Ruth,
We do not believe this is a Beetle larva. It looks to us more like the larva of a Fly in the order Diptera, possibly a Horse Fly. We will attempt further research on this.
