Evans book is great but it would not help here. I'd say it has less than 20 pics of beetle larvae. Was really hoping it would have pics of larvae when I ordered the book. Beetle larvae are incredibly diverse. I've seen insects that I'd never ever guess were beetle larvae. Luckily, beetles are one of the top two insect orders when it comes to popularity so there are a lot of people out there who can ID them for you.

Great info. Maybe I should look for his book.

Thanks.

At first, I wasn't thinking outside of Lepidoptera, but I am finally starting to think outside of that box.

So they are not caterpillars... infected by a fungus.
The appearance of slime is actually the drippings of a poop shield of the Sunflower Tortoise Beetles larvae.
