I found this grub eating my apple tree so i had to cut it down to prevent it spreading to my other fruit trees. but i really don't know what sort of grub it is. I live in east Anglia u.k and the closest match i can find is a tree boreing grub from america. Please can someone HELP!!

Thanks.

I have to say, and you won't hear me say it very often, tee hee: I have absolutely no idea.

Hi, Do you have a sharper photo, both of them are blurry. I think it's looks like a beetle larvae of some kind.

O.k, that's what i thought.

I'm wondering whether it's a Horntail larva

You could try posting the photo on Wild about Britain in the beetle forum, hopefully someone there might be able to id it for you.

Whatever it is/was (lucky bird) I think you'll find that it was eating wood that was already rotten - that's the usual way of things.
