Sorry! I jumped the gun!

I just sent a picture of a grub we found in a dead slash pine in Florida. After checking a little further, it appears to be the larvae of the flatheaded or metallic wood borer. We also found a few of them in the tree. Here is the photo again for reference. Keep up the great work!
What a beautiful Flathead Borer and we are thrilled that you managed to identify it in our convoluted archive with its nearly 15,000 postings. We expect that David Gracer would report that it is an Edible species and most likely a tasty morsel.
