It is some sort of Hemiptera nymph, likely family Reduviidae. If it is a North American species, my advice would be to load this image up ontopat_sarge_45
Looks like some sort of Click Beetle to me (Order Coleoptera, family Elateridae). -Patrick MurrayLexington, Ind., 47138pat_sarge_45

This group is available for you to post questions about the study, rearing and identification of insects and other arthropods in association with the Amateur Entomologists' Society Bug Club. The Bug Club is for youngsters interested in insects and other minibeasts. Bug Clubbers receive a colourful and exciting magazine six times a year and a variety of other benefits.
When sending a question please include details of your Country/State. We will answer your questions wherever possible. However, many require local knowledge and we hope that enthusiasts from around the world will help to answer questions from their own regions.
Please note, when using this service you are expected to be courteous and polite. The experts in this group give up their time for free to assist people, common courtesy (for example, saying 'Thank you') is expected in return for that help.
Pictures of bugs that still need to be identified can be found in the Folders marked Identity1 to Identity4 in the Files area. If you want an insect identified click on the appropriate Identity file and use the Add File facility to send your picture to the group. If you upload a file to one of these folders you must also send an e-mail to the group to advise members that you have done so, otherwise they will not know it is there.
