Any help with an identification would be greatly appreciated, this larva was found on moorland, it was 22mm long.
No interactions present.
Thanks for the ID. I had given an ID of Carabus for a similar but considerably fatter larva some time ago for Ophrys, but when I saw this I had some doubts over how specific I had IDed his- Carabidae would be a good bit less specific I think and very probably accurate.
I wonder what a Devils Coach Horse larva looks like? The above larva was found on a moorland road where several carabus species abound BUT then again, so do many many other types of beetle, Carabus are just the most eye catching due to their size.
EDIT- I dont think its a Devils Coach Horse as it belongs to the family Staphylinidae.
Neither a Staphylinidae, as they have legs with one less segment than ground beetles.
