Midge larva

Nice shots. Do you think those filaments in shot 7 are part of the nervous system? It appears the network originates in the area of the brain area. You're lucky the larva was kind enough to curl up so you could get almost all of it into the field of view with a 4X objective.
How did you narcotize it?

Thank you.
It's probably the bloodstream, not fixed in any way preparations.
I used scaffolding with cover slips so as not to crush the larvae
