Some kind of larvae?
Hi Bugman,
I love bugs. I found this larvae in my garden last fall. I had to get my camera, sheet of paper to put him on and photograph it. I have tried to find out what it is, with no avail. That is why I’m turning to you to help ID it. I try to find out what bugs are good for the garden and which are not so good and have to be relocated. I love your site. Since I have found it, I check it everyday to see what other cool bugs are on it. I never realized how many people are into bugs. By the way I live in the Chicago area. Thanks
Glenn

Hi Glenn,
This is a Firefly Larva in the Family Lampyridae, but we are not sure of the species. We will see if Eric Eaton can shed any additional light on this.
