Yuck - o!!! We call them Mosquito Eaters in Northern California aka. Skeeter Eaters. Anything that eats mosquitos is alright by me though.

Thanks guys! I'm glad we figured it out. They are ugly things, alien looking but they don't bite and the eat other skeeters. Now I feel kinda bad for feeding them to Figment .

Are mosquito eater larvae pink? :s I googled them and the pictures provided didn't bear too much resemblance to the pics of the larvae in your tub. The ones in your tub are too long to be skeeter eater larvae.

Edit- Unless I'm being stupid and my eyes don't work. @-@

Actually it's probably toxorhynchites splendens. The other one is from Australia.
