I definitely don't think they're lily beetles, but certainly look like a different kind of leaf beetle (Chrysomelidae)

Based on how much she weighed yesterday, over a third of her mass was parasite. No wonder she barely ate.

Whoa. One of my grasshoppers was hosting parasites! This is common but I've not seen it before. They look like fly larvae 2 me. ?

It's a cactus fly, family Neriidae. Can try and get you a genus when I'm back in the lab in a bit.

I'm fairly certain it's a flower fly (Syrphidae), but can't confirm or tell you more without a location. Beautiful fly though!
