Beetle Larva: either Firefly or Netwing Beetle

strange creature
I haven’t searched to see what it is because I have no idea where to start looking. It’s about 1 1⁄2 inches long, found in Dallas, GA. What is it?

Hi Lee,
This is a beetle larva, but we do not know if it is a Firefly Larva or a Netwing Beetle Larva. We haven’t located any concrete method for distinguishing Lampyridae larvae from Lycidae larvae.
