    Cried the entire night before I leave for South Carolina tomorrow.

    No goodbye kiss. No goodbye hug. No goodbye at all. Too busy with everyone else.

    Always second best.

    And I let it all happen,

Scientists have just described a parasitic fly larva, Qiyia jurassica, from the Jurassic of China. Related to modern horse and deer flies, this prehistoric maggot had a number of specialized adaptations for attaching to prehistoric amphibians and sucking their blood, including a sucker on its thorax, bristly prolegs to anchor itself underwater, and piercing mouthparts for blood feeding.
The sucker on its thorax is an entirely novel structure  — while other aquatic maggots have suckers, no modern flies have one as large or elaborate as Qiyia's, which structurally resembles the powerful suckers found on octopuses and squids. Quiya's discoverers hypothesize that this structure would have allowed the maggot to latch onto ancient salamanders and feed, almost like a leech.
