Hi basileus, the 3rd abdominal segment is hard to see and it would help, if we knew where you've found it: under bark of dead wood?

The image shows a late instar larva of Phaeostigma notata, that I've found under loose bark of a dead spruce and your's could be the same:

I found a larva on the metal fence of a road bridge over a river. Trees are close to the bridge. The larva crawls on metal. The next day I saw the larva again in the same place. She was active.

If you see it again, please try to make a photo with focus of the 3rd abdominal segment. Usually the larvae live under bark (like the common Phaostigma notata - no continuous centerline) or in the root area of trees or shrubs (like the common Dichrostigma flavipes - continuous centerline).
