Darkling Beetle Larva

Dear Matt,
This appears to be an immature Fly, possibly a Leatherjacket, the larva of a Crane Fly.

Ed. Note:  We received a comment that this is a Darkling Beetle larva.  Here is a somewhat similar looking image from FLickR.

Location: Ohio

    It’s a larva of Tenebrionidae (Coleoptera), not Diptera
