Hi Stanislav, yesterday I found very similar larvae/pupae and was looking in the Bibionidae myself, but couldn\'t find a match (except for your image here), so I asked on diptera.info. Tony Irwin identified mine as <i>Forcipomyia</i> (Ceratopogonidae), so I\'m sure yours must be that also. See: https://diptera.info/forum/viewthread.php?thread_id=99869 Cheers, Arp

This is Trox niger.

This is a specimen of Trox sabulosus, not T. hispidus.

Čeleď Menoponidae to asi je. Zlotorzycka (1980) uvádí 4 druhy té čeledi parazitující na pávech, M. gallinae mezi nimi není.
