insect larvae

     In some of my outdoor daphnia rearing containers I have found some 
     interesting insect larvae. Some are easily identifiable as mosquito 
     larvae and others look like chironomid (sp?) (blood worm) larva. I 
     noticed another type which I hope someone can identify. It is about 
     the size of a mosquito larva, very black, more round shaped than a 
     mosquito larva. My killies seemed to enjoy eating it as they do other 
     insect larvae. Any ideas?
