    $\begingroup$ Karl's answer is about as far as we can go without size and locality information, and by the way, that is debris on the animal's back ... $\endgroup$ – Arthur J Frost Sep 24 '18 at 1:49
  • $\begingroup$ It looks like an earwig to me, they're great parents too, lugging all their young around with them. $\endgroup$ – Linda Hayes Jan 8 at 21:00

This is a kind of neuroptera larva https://www.google.com/search?q=neuroptera+larva.

The smooth jaws discard an antlion https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antlion.

Is more like a chyrsopidae https://www.google.com/search?tbm=isch&q=neuroptera+larva&chips=q:neuroptera+larvae,g_1:chrysopidae:qWI0Ngq4zAQ%3D. They like to camouflage with debris found around them.
