they look parasitized. the hyaline, almost crystaline tissue surrounding the larvae is reminiscent of some Entomophthorales genera, ie: Pandora, Entomophthora Furia, Erynia, Empusa, etc.

these were larvae indeed. But the larvae also had fungi growing in them. I didn’t notice a mention of fungus on larvae, so posted my comment on Insecta. Now I’m not sure how to go forward, since Eduardo was more interested in the fungus that apparently killed the larvae, than in the larvae themselves. Moderator comment please?

De acuerdo, larvas, pero todos estaban muertas, posiblemente por una enfermedad, Cuando abri la muestra para examinarla, dos horas despues, se habian secado completamente, quedando solo una fina pelicula sobre la hoja, en la que observe numerosas esporas. Estas larvas no estaban en una sola hoja, sino que estaban diseminadas por un area de unos 10 cm2, sobre varias hojas secas.

suggest Insecta. Uniform length suggests they hatched from the same clutch of eggs.
