Was just outside and found thousands of these crawling up my garage and house. I have lived here for 24+ years and never seen these before. No idea what they might be and am wondering if anyone here might know? Thanks in advance.

Any chance of a side view, to show all the legs? A close-up of the head, to show mouthparts would be good too.

Thanks for the reply Harold. It was getting dark and I didn;t get any other images last night but I did get an email from someone today showing me this site which seems to be correct with the ID: http://oregonstate.edu/dept/nurspest/alder%20flea%20beetle%20closeup2.htm
It would appear the alder trees are in for a bad time in the upcoming weeks.

My belief was that it was a beetle larva but I didn't have a good reason to say so). The only possibilities were Lepidoptera ot Coleoptera.
