Possibly Firefly Larva

Possibly Firefly Larva

Dear Werner,
This is some species of beetle larva, probably either a Firefly or a Netwing Beetle.  It is very difficult to distinguish the family from the very similar looking larvae.   There is a similar looking image posted to iSpot.

Daniel thank you so much for the mail.
You made my day and my whole family’s!
We’ve been sending the video on all day.
The most amazing part is i own a company called Firefly in South Africa!
I love finding new bugs to identify but never came across one of them before.
I will research their life cycles tonight.
Thanks again and we will happily donate to your site.
