That may be some sort of Assassin Bug larvae.

Yah, after looking at your suggestions it does look a lot like an assassin bug. But I just can't find what specific one it is.

That doesn't look like a larva to me........

True bug larvae.
Alydidae nymph I believe.

If anything, yes, a nymph.

After looking up your suggestions I think maybe it's a Alydus eurinus nymph?

I don't see a problem with someone commenting on something they found cool.  The only times someone shouldn't bring a post back from the dead is if it's a mess of a thread.

its just with the current decline of formiculture I'm more opposed to it.
