Advertisement I noticed a huge number of these desperately trying to crawl out of the soil when I watered my sundew (D. filiformis): I know the picture is bad, but it's the best I could get for now. The head is reddish brown, the body is grayish brown, and the entire insect is about 1/2" long. It seems to be some sort of larva, and I think it produces silk at least occasionally (did so when hanging off of my hand, unless that was just sundew glue). Any ideas? Also, should I post this in the insect forum instead?
