This is the larval form of the American Carrion Beetle. It's hard to explain, but it moves like a mouse or other small mammal, not like an insect. Startled the heck out of me when I saw it!
While these feed on carrion, they'll also eat fungi, and I have to assume that's what they're eating in my garden, as I do not leave very many corpses lying around. Garden in mixed woods.
