Forked Fungus Beetle larvae? - Bolitotherus cornutus

Forked Fungus Beetle larvae? - Bolitotherus cornutus
Merrimack, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
December 9, 2006
Size: up to 11 mm

It's worth noting that the larvae of this species can differ remarkably in appearance based perhaps on latitude or diet or both. Click on this image of Florida larvae reared on the conk species Ganoderma lucidum and read the discussion below it:
