Tough to say if they have legs or not.  But I see what appears to be a dark head capsule.  If so, they aren't flies. 

A question:  Were they that wet/moist when you found them?  Or did you tidy them up for the photo shoot?

Hi,

I was replanting lily bulbs yesterday when I noticed some larvae 
apparently nibbling at them, see this photo:

I'd be grateful if anyone knows what they are. The 1 pound coin they are 
crawling on is around an inch in diameter. Too big for fungus gnats and 
vine weevil look different. They are dark brown to black.
