Mecoptera - Panorpidae
The female Panorpidae lays its eggs (several clutches) in loose soil, with which then stick together and form balls. The hatched larvae are similar to caterpillars and are dark. They have 8 pairs of short feet on their abdomens and bristles on their backs. The larvae live in the soil in which they feed on carrion, small living organisms or parts of plants.
