Very good photo! :D I wonder if it could be a lacewing larvae, though I know sometimes they hide themselves with bits of organic trash. Could be this is a rouge. :-k

Macroman, welcome aboard! :D (It's not like Ken to miss a first-post welcome, but since this one slipped through the cracks, I get the honor. It's a treat!)

It seems like I should know this subject, but I can't quite put my finger on it. :-k Oh well, we have other members who can probably ID it immediately for you.

Again, welcome aboard -- and nice image!

I will add my welcome also Macroman. "Welcome to the forums" :smt109
You know, I am going to say this is a beetle larvae of some kind. I have seen something like this in my terrarium burrowing in the moss I brought in from the woods. They had the same silver metallic sheen as seen in the first picture. Maybe this?????

Thank you Betty
Correction: In my second line above, the word "larvae" should be "Larva" because there is only one creature showing in the picture.

Welcome aboard, Macroman. Nice shots, so the MP-E 65 mm works on the 400D under field conditions ... :-k

No, please! It's not "a beetle larvae"!!! :smt088 :wink:

But, yes methinks it´s a beetle larva, if there were two or more on the picture of the same kind, then there would be beetle larvae. :smt045:wink:
Staphylinidae or Carabidae methinks, a high-mag shot of a tarsus or of two or more tarsi :twisted: :wink: could help!

BTW, feel free to correct my English whenever it is necessary. Docendo discimus!
