I’m not quite sure on this one, I’m thinking it’s either a glowworm or a trilobite beetle? there’s a bit of pinkish coloring on the underside and its slow moving and calm. not too large or anything
Glowworms are larvae and larviform females of beetles in the family Phengodidae, and coincidentally, we just finished posting an image of a Glowworm. Your individual is a Firefly Larva in the family Lampyridae, and though both families are known for Bioluminescence, they are distinct families, even though we have categorized them together on our site. You can compare your image of a Firefly larva to images posted to BugGuide.
