Larva of a snakefly

6533.     Found 3 days ago, under coffee machine. It moves sinusoidally, and will jump/spring. It seems to be able to use the tip of it’s abdomen to anchour and jump. The length is about 2 cm stretched out. Since it doesn’t have wings I assume it’s a larva. When stretched out the corrugations in the abdomen look brown. Coquitlam, BC. Canada
