This millipede looking larva thing was hiding under a bag in our house. Help? Light brown body with dark brown segments six legs in front of body. Little over an inch long.

Dear Curious in Carmel, CA,
If you take your critter, the larva of a beetle in the family Phengodidae, into a darkened room, you will see why it earned the common name Glowworm.  We believe it is a Western Banded Glowworm,
Zarhipis integripennis, and you can find more information on Bugguide.
