Adam Ślipiński says, "Corylophidae for sure...
"...not sure the genus though ☺"

Moved from Beetles.

Thanks very much.
Please thank Dr. Ślipiński for me for his identification help with this one. :)

Floyd Shockley says, "Lovely little corylophid.
"I hope they let it grow up and take a pic of the adult. It would be nice to know whose kid this is."

I wish
I could let it grow up. I found it by using a Berlese funnel… so it is preserved in alcohol. Tell Floyd I am so sorry. I guess I'll never know whose kid this is. :(

that's fine
it's still nice to have larval pics of any member of this obscure family
