Possibly Tanypodinae ...?

Tanypodinae is a subfamily of midges in the non-biting midge family (Chironomidae).
The larvae are generally carnivorous and their mouthparts are adapted for predation on small invertebrates
(including other chironomid larvae) although 1st and 2nd instar* larvae also feed on algae**.
*An instar is a developmental stage of arthropods, such as insects, between each moult, until sexual maturity is reached.
Wiki
**It would appear to have ingested several diatoms.
