Crane fly larva
This is a crane fly larva, possibly one of the "wood-boring tipulids" in the genus Ctenophora. I am assuming it was found in rotten wood.

It was in rotting wood. I am surprised that it is a cranefly larva...this other photo I took was also ID'd as a cranefly larva and it looks so different.
