These images should be unlinked... linking is reserved for different views of the same specimen. They can be cross referenced by placing thumbnails in the Remarks section of each, if desired.

Also, if you're not certain of the family, I would suggest moving the pics to ID Request (or at least Coleoptera). This looks a bit like a Cantharid larva to me. The experts will be able to say for sure.


especially since I think the other pic is Diptera!

Also, never 'take a stab' at posting; only post at a level you are comfortable with. If you are unsure, put in ID Request

So this is a carabid?
