Lycid larvae? - Lycus sanguineus
Dona Ana County, New Mexico, USA
December 26, 2005
Size: 20 - 21 mm
Three found together under stone on ridge top, lower slopes of Organ Mountains. Very slow moving, which is one reason I think they are lycids, not lampyrids. The other reason is the absence of any light-producing segments on their underside. Since all three were together, my guess is that their color/pattern differences represent variability in a single species, not different species.
