Rove beetle I think: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/138...
I've seen one of these eating an earth worm. It had its facial pincers griping the earth worm and its tail-end had curled upwards and latched on to the prey with, what appeared to be, 4 piercing spikes. The tail was extracting substance with a wave like motion rippling through each segment, although it was gulping down dinner.
Looks like the larva stage of a beetle. The larvae is often far more hideous than the beetle. Even ladybug larvae is creepy.
