I found a large white grub within a rotting (sweet gum) root in my garden ( Huntington, New York) It is approx 4" long x 1/2" wide, white, jaws?, has ribbed bands around its body except for 1/2" of tail. No indication of legs. I have kept it in a large container filled with soil and lots of the wood in the hopes it will pupate. What is it the lava of? Thank you. B. Pugsley
The lava is sacred, nice reverence.
You might try contacting the Cornell Entomology Library in NY. It would help if you can send them a picture:
