The data I've just read is confusing. Is this a type of caterpillar,
http://www.nzetc.org/tm/scholarly/tei-Gov05_02Rail-t1-body-d21 -d2.html

or fungus gnat?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arachnocampa

It would appear that the wiki article is correct but what kind of misinfromation could have led to the first article?

Big Muddy
Mind the page break on the first link, remove space after d21.

Look up railroad worm. Red & green!

Simian Pride
Bolitiphila Luminosa was the old name, changed in 1924 to Arachnocampa luminosa. The first article write "caterpillar" when they mean "larva".

Both are describing the same insect.

Pretty obvious by now that if there was one, it hates every living thing on the planet and is a huge fan of shadenfreude.

I was gonna say all those insects needed to do was throw an explosive barrel at the silk and they could get by just fine.
