Ciid Larva - Cis submicans

Ciid Larva - Cis submicans
Guelph, Wellington, Ontario, Canada
March 10, 2007
Size: ~ 4 mm
I know nearly next to nothing about the identification of the larvae of fungus-inhabiting beetles, but I found this larva alongside Minute Tree-fungus Beetles, a photo of which I had just posted: . So, I'm guessing that these may be their larvae.

*Turns out that this is indeed the larva of a "Minute" Tree-fungus Beetle.

Hi Stephen,
This strikes me as too large to be a ciid larva . .

 
Unless...
there's a decimal point missing.

 
What was I thinking? :-(
Thanks for pointing that out, guys; it's really closer to 4 mm in length. Even then, it's way too big to be a Ciid larva...
