Eucinetidae larva (possibly the genus Eucinetus) - Eucinetus

Eucinetidae larva (possibly the genus Eucinetus) - Eucinetus
c. 90 km NW of Peace River, Alberta, Canada
September 14, 2011
I collected this beetle larva from a white spruce (Picea glauca) log (early decompositional stage). I really don't match this into even family category.

*Artjom Zaitsev helped to identify this as Eucinetidae larva (possibly Eucinetus sp.)

Eucinetidae, most likely Eucinetus

 
Thanks, Artjom!
It is a very helpful comment. I bet you are right, because I found couples of Eucinetus adults in my filed site (It wasn't identified to species level though).
I visited your flickr page, and saw Eucinetus larva there. I am wondering if you reared the larva and saw the emerged adult as Eucinetus? Btw, it is a wonderful site with high quality larval photos.
Thanks again!

 
Glad I could help! Yes, inde
Glad I could help!
Yes, indeed, the larvae were collected together with adults of Eucinetus haemorrhoidalis, and later reared in the laboratory.

 
That's cool~!
Thanks for the quick reply.
