I can see evidence of the streamer-type things ("tails?") in that tail end. I am curious to see some shots of waterbeetle larvae though.

This is a Corydalid larva...I would say that this is a fishfly (Chauliodes sp)...but someone may correct the genus...thanks for the new pic by the way.

Thanks for the help with this larva.
