Hi, It is difficult to get an exact id from a photo. It is the larval stage of an insect, most likely a boring beetle. Where did you find it? That lend clues as to what type of insect it is, in the soil or a tree?


Thanks for your reply. I believe it came from some firewood pieces, possibly some fir wood- so some sort of a wood beetle it would seem.

Yes, then likely a wood boring beetle larva.
