Insect ID request possibly Dicaelus sp. - Dicaelus

Insect ID request possibly Dicaelus sp. - Dicaelus
Union Mills, Rutherford County, North Carolina, USA
September 16, 2017
Size: Aprox. 4cm
Any guidance on identifying this insect would be greatly appreciated. Possibly larval Dicaelus?

Yes, Dicaelus

Moved, the family should at least be sound
Moved from ID Request.

 
I've seen a fair number of ad
I've seen a fair number of adult species of Dicaelus in the area. Could it be in that genus?

There are a lot of photos on BugGuide showing similar larva that are classified under this genus...here is one example: https://bugguide.net/node/view/876267

I figured this was a carabid larva of some sort
and I knew I'd seen it before - finally found it

 
Thanks so much for the help!
