Talkback: Strange beetle larva

This is really weird. What are the tufty bits along its body for?

    The feathery fronds are a bit of a mystery. We know hardly anything about these beetles' life histories. My only guess is that they help prevent the larva getting covered in snail mucous when they attack their prey.
