Checkered beetle larva

Cleridae sp.


I think it could be Thanasimus sp. Cleridae are a family of beetles of the superfamily Cleroidea. They are commonly known as checkered beetles. Larvae feed on wood borer insects


Comin out straight forward from a dead pine trunk. Did not move, look very stiff. One more later still there but no stiff anymore
