The antenna look nothing alike though.
and the tail looks wrong. I see only to in the original pic, and there appears to be two pair in the grylloblatid
Hopefully this picture is better.
Closest thing I can find is a caseless caddis. These spin nets which funnel food.
The leg positions look the same, differences in the mouth parts.
That didn't work. How do you guys get the picture full view in the post.
upload it to a image hosting service like photobucket, then copy the URL link to the photo so you can embed it on this page.
I just keep getting an x where my photo is supposed to be. This a brand new camera and software so I don't really know how to use it yet, but here is a link to the picture doctored up a little.
Damn your good.
Rove Beetle larvae!
edit: man, I need a drink after that search...
THAT looks like the best match so far!
Yep - That's a dead ringer. Holy cow. Luke. I'll buy you a drink tomorrow
Freaking awesome bunch of bug geeks going after it on the Interwebs. You guys rock. Who's tying up a bunch of these to share?
Man, I wish...some Glenrothes sounds AWESOME right about now.
Believe it or not, I found one very similar to this in my gear box.
Wrong, so very wrong.

I entered a search for Snowfly and got the following.
I stand corrected with a face full of crow. I was quick to judge from the snow, some rock crawlers (grylloblatids) forage on the snow and I've seen them often on ski trips.
Where's Roger Stephens when you need him....
Maybe you'll settle for any Roger. It is certainly a beetle larva, probably a Woodland Ground Beetle, perhaps Pterostichus lama.
