Description

Was seen in a small pool of water. In very low water level in El Corte De Madera Creek. Just below the bridge recently constructed on the Methuselah Trail. It is obviously quite large even as viewed underwater.

This larvae was sitting in the Cave Gulch creek, meters before the water disappears into limestone karst. My apologies for the bigfootesque underwater photography.
