Wow!
I'll stay tuned. I don't think I've ever seen one that looks like this. Good luck, Tom! Oh yes, do you know what kind of wood you found this in? Was is under bark or down in the wood?

 
I've got pupa!
I just checked and it's turned into a pupa. Good, I don't have to worry about feeding it.
I think it was in an old log on the ground, but I can't remember for sure.

 
interesting
my money's on tenebrionidae

 
Ditto here.
It bears a resemblance to some smaller ones I've reared.
