You found Pelidnota punctata larvae :)

Thank you all for your input, but after checking out photos of the probable ID's Lucanus I believe got it right.

During the seventeen years living in Broward County, Florida, the only beetle that I have seen mentioned above is P punctata.

I have even seen P punctata in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, they get around those vine beetles.

Was hoping for something more extravagant like "Strategus antaeus", and I was even daydreaming for D tytus.

I will take better pics on Monday as requested above.

Have a great Sunday Coleopteraphiles
