Moved, almost certainly a Coniontis larva...

Coniontis sp
This looks exactly like a coniontis larva, I am breeding a species in this genus, and the larva look like this.

 
Sounds likely
We have Coniontis in the yard so that is a high probability (previous photo post below of Coniontis from yard).

The only other Darkling Beetles, that I know of, that might be in my yard are escapee Tenebrio moliter and Zophobas morio.

 
Neat!
I just put an image on the guide of a captive bred larva here. http://bugguide.net/node/view/1029947/1816635

EDIT: How do I post a link on here?

 
Links
Standard HTML code works, or to add a linked thumbnail image, type [thumb:1029947 and then an end bracket (those six digits being the digits at the end of the link, ignoring the second set in the link you posted, which refer to a comment below the image)

 
Ok
Thanks for the info, and for putting a link to my image!

Moved from Darkling Beetles.
