Cylindrotomid cranefly larva uncannily resembling mosses (IMAGE) Ehime University Caption (Upper) A larva of terrestrial moss-feeding crane fly, Liogma mikado, marvellously blended into a moss-laden habitat. Head on the left. (Lower) A larva of L. brevipecten, another moss-feeding species. The perfect protective resemblance is offered by three elements: green coloration, dorsal dark patterning, and numerous fleshy lobes. Head on the left.
