Gordon Dietzman-The closest one I found was under the heading: unidentified larvae and pupae. Argh! :-) For now it'll be listed under Coccinellidae - Lady Beetles for lack of a better id. Thank you!!!

I agree with Uday that it is a ladybug larvae. Not sure which species, but you might want to try to ID it at http://bugguide.net/node/view/340375/bgi.... Sort through the photos for each gensu; some of them have photos of larvae. Good luck in your search! I'll be curious what you come up with.
