Found them under dead logs. The millipedes I'm familiar with, but never bothered figuring out what they are. The other "things" I assume are a beetle larva, in that case I want to keep them as they are abundant at my forest.

 

 

Feel free to ask questions!

Thanks, I'm pretty sure they are cardinal beetle larva.

Cardinal beetles are a European group. Look at cucujids.

Yea I agree, honestly it could be a number of things. I will try to keep these until they turn into beetles.
