Trilobite Beetle

It was raining  when I spotted this creature (Duliticola sp.) in the mountain of Samal Island. Found it on a damp rotten log moving very slow. Flat-bodied, scales that were larger from the head getting smaller on the tail end,  with three pairs of legs, just not seen in the photo. This is a female trilobite larva and  it will continue to be in its larval form throughout its life. Only male morph to adult stage, smaller  in size and  having the look of a net-winged beetle.
