So, yesterday I found a beetle larva under some bark on a rotting log, Ive never seen one of these before, and Im going on the assumption that its a tenebrionid, its a little bit similar to meracantha contracta, except that the end is rounded and not caved in, plus Im pretty sure they dont live in my area. One thing I considered it may be is tarpela micans, but Ive never seen a larva from one of those before so I dont know. Any opinions or care tips would be greatly appreciated, and if it succeeds I will post updates (it was surprisingly covered partially in frost when I found it).
