This larva I found under the bark of an oak. If you could help me to identify! I think it’s a buprestidae member.
This is indeed a Flathead Borer, the larva of a Beetle in the family Buprestidae, but alas, we are not going to be able to provide you with a species identification. It might be the European Oak Borer, Agrilus sulcicollis, which is pictured here and is the subject of a technical paper on Cambridge.org.
Dear Daniel, thanks for your rapid answer. I will investigate from there, even I hope to help the larva to raise an adult and make a proper id.
