Forked Fungus Beetle larva - Bolitotherus cornutus - female

Forked Fungus Beetle larva - Bolitotherus cornutus - Female
Merrimack, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
December 9, 2006
Size: about 16 mm
This larva had not pupated but was showing the signs of readiness. It has stoped eating, exacuating its gut, accounting for the entirely pale body (no dark food showing through), it had grown shorter and stockier, and it was gyrating its abdomen like a pupa does, although not as energetically. I took this shot yesterday (Saturday, Mar. 3) evening, intending to get another shot before it actually pupated.

For me it was more a case of not wanting February to end ;-)
