Mystery Larva from Cuba

Hi Jan,
When we first looked at the thumbnail attached to your email, we thought this must be a Stinging Slug Caterpillar in the family Limacodidae, but once we enlarged it and saw the size of the legs, we changed our mind.  We believe this is a beetle larva, perhaps on of the Lady Beetles in the family Coccinellidae.  There are many examples posted to BugGuide.
