Larvae of some Nicrophorus sp Found these larvae under a dead mole that was feebly dug in. In the previous days, two species of Nicrophorus had been busy around the mole (N. vespillo and N. vespilloides), so it's unclear what species these belong to. Top right is a much younger larva, seen earlier than the others. Close-ups are probably shot by Jeanette.
