  Cutaneous Larva Migrans - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment
Cutaneous larvae migrans (also called "creeping eruption" or "ground itch") is found in southeastern and Gulf states, and in tropical developing countries.
Cutaneous larva migrans (CLM) is a cutaneous lesion produced by percutaneous penetration and migration of larvae of various nematode parasites, characterized by erythematous, serpiginous, papular, or vesicular linear lesions corresponding to the movements of the larvae beneath the skin.
Larvae remain viable in soil/sand for several weeks.

The majority of infections is seen in the southeastern United States, and is commonly seen on beaches where individuals are walking their dogs.

  Harry Larva - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Born in Turku, Harry Larva was forced to change his last name from Lagerström to Larva in 1928 by a young president of Finnish Athletics Union and known nationalist Urho Kaleva Kekkonen, because his name didn't sound as Finnish.
Larva, a Finnish champion in 800 m from 1928 to 1930 and in 1934, won only one bronze (1927) in his favourite distance 1500 m at Finnish Championships.
Larva competed also at the 1932 Summer Olympics and finished 10th in a 1500 m.

 AllRefer.com - larva, in zoology (Zoology: Invertebrates) - Encyclopedia
Larvae occur in almost all of the animal phyla; because most are tiny or microscopic, they are rarely seen.
Larvae of parasites may be dispersed by penetrating the skin of new hosts; other parasite larvae live in intermediate hosts that are normally eaten by the final host, in which the adult parasites develop.
The larvae of other parasites live in and are dispersed by intermediate hosts such as mosquitoes, gnats, or leeches; when the blood meals are taken from the final host, the parasite larvae are introduced into the blood or skin.

The larva is shown eating; this stage is the main nutritive stage of a moth’s or a butterfly’s life cycle.
Larvae are typical of the invertebrates, some of which (for example, shrimps) have two or more distinct larval stages.
The process whereby the larva changes into another stage, such as a pupa (chrysalis) or adult, is known as metamorphosis.

Larvae leave the cocoons in the early spring about the time the buds open, feed briefly (about two weeks) on the exterior of opening buds and then bore into the young tender shoots, where they mature and pupate.
Larvae feed inside the nuts for three to four weeks, mature and pupate in one of the last nuts attacked, and the adults emerge nine to 14 days later.
Mature larvae overwinter in pecan shucks found on the ground or the tree and emerge as moths in mid-May. Spring development of HSW coincides with that of native hickory trees, which set fruit two to three weeks earlier than pecans.

Inside each larva are the genetic codes and the DNA for every creature in the Zerg swarm and many assimilated races that the Overmind did not see a use for.
While the larvae are not individually intelligent, they have very strong survival instincts, which is one of the reasons they were able to survive for so long on their desolate home world.
Inside the egg, the larva is destroying the delicate balance it establishes between the diverse genetic codes inside its body, allowing a single strand to become dominate.

With some patience it is possible to find the larvae of animals like the common starfish (Asterias rubens) in the plankton and to follow the development of these larvae into miniature sea-stars.
Larvae of other echinoderms are also present in the plankton, like those of sea urchins, sea cucumbers and brittle stars.
Larvae of sea cucumbers and starfishes don't have a skeleton, those of sea urchins and brittle stars possess an internal skeleton, consisting of skeletal spicules, supporting the more elongate "arms" of the larvae.

 The Evil Inclination - Yetze Hara / Spider manipulation by a wasp larva
The importance of this is illustrated by the vulnerability of pupae of the related wasp H. robertsae to heavy rains [7].
As the spider continues to build the cocoon web even when the larva is removed shortly before construction would normally start, the changes in the spider’s behaviour must be induced chemically rather than by direct physical interference.
The larva’s ability to induce specific behaviour patterns in the spider indicates that, at some level within the host, such fine behavioural details are independent units, and not artificial constructs.

The trilobite larvae had kept the world of science puzzled for nearly a hundred years until Mjöberg unveiled the mystery in 1924, in the rainforests of Sarawak.
With this breakthrough, the world learned that trilobite larvae were female insects that had grown to maturity while retaining their juvenile or larval form, a phenomenon known as neoteny.
In a chapter devoted to the trilobite larvae, he described how he trekked through the jungles of Sarawak in rain and shine, climbed mountains and camped out in the rainforests with his porters and his specimens of trilobite larva.

Although cutaneous larva migrans can occur in the temperate zones in the warmer months of the year, infection is most commonly found in tropical and subtropical climates.
Unlike in animals, the larvae are unable to penetrate the epidermal basement membrane of human skin; therefore, the larvae roam haphazardly in the epidermis and are unable to complete their life cycle.
Larvae localized to the skin may elicit a generalized sensitization with soluble antigens in the lung to cause the pulmonary infiltrates.
