Abstract

A description and illustration are given for a Chioneinae (Limoniidae) larva from Baltic amber. This is the first known larva of a crane fly in Baltic amber, and the first known fossil specimen of a Chioneinae larva. The specimen is identified as probably in the genus Ormosia. Possible habitats of this larva were damp mud or leaf litter along watercourses or in woodlands.
