Glow worm larvae?



Can anyone help me with the identification of this species? I think it could this be the larvae of a glow-worm but i'm not sure. Sorry about the rubbish photo, it kept running around and I couldn't make it keep still and I couldn't get a good picture of its head. It was a pesky little thing.

I have these in my yard in Ohio. I also thought they were glow worms. For what it's worth I have lots and lots of fireflies in my yard all summer. What a great picture. They do move fast!!

Yep, definitely a glow-worm larva (Lampyris noctiluca), looks like it's about to enjoy a snail feast!
