Firstly let me congratulate you on a wonderful website. Within minutes of arriving I was able to identify that one the two strange bugs I found was a ‘House Centipede’. The other I’m having more problems with. I found the insect in the shower on a recent holiday to Greece. I think it may be some sort of beetle larva but would love to know which one. It reminds me of the ladybird larva but was considerably bigger at 1.5 to 2 inches in length. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi James,
It is definitely a beetle larva. It looks like one of the Lampyridae or Firefly larvae. They are predatory.

    Thank you so much!
    I’d have never thought to look for larva of anything with the way this is built.
