Pagastia indet (Diamesinae indet 3)
Possibly Pagastia due to submental and head setation.
You can "walk" through images by clicking on pictures to get next photo layer. Below you can write a comment.
Naming history: Diamesinae indet3 -> Pagastia indet
- mentum: 2 small median teeth, 6/7? lateral, submental setation very far away caudad below 6/(7?)th lateral tooth, large ventromental plates;
- postoccipital margin: dark brown
Head (4th? instar):
Head (2nd? instar):
Note the quite long seta subdentalis on the mandible.
first I placed it to Nanocladius, but within Chaetocladius or maybe Parakiefferiella there are similar specimens, but the submental setation isn't the same. The I found a similar submental setation in Pagastia (Diamesinae) but I have no further descriptions or photos available. The "2nd?-stage" head belongs I suppose to the same taxa group, because: a) is in same sample b) same submental setation. Any further suggestions?
It can be confirm that it is not Nanocladius. Setation submenti is a key character of Pagastia, i agree with your opinion. It may be Pagastia orthogonia/lanceolata, both of them are distributed in Palaearctic mountain area, you'd better check some papers of Makarchenko or Endo.
