Any ideas on these bugs?

IMG_0898 - caterpillar of some kind, think moth?  Any particular named insect would be good.  c.10mm

 

IMG_0902 & IMG_0904 - think these could possibly be beetle larvae???  Please identify a name if poss.  They were various sizes - from <1mm to 10mm.

 

IMG_0906 - some sort of fly - female with ovipositor? OR is that a stinger???

 

IMG_0413 - beetle larvae - is this the ear wig larvae or other???

 

These were found on the Dorset heaths when out minibeasting with school groups (also found a snake fly - which are really cool!)

 

Many thanks in advance for your recognition - without you I would be none-the-wiser and still Googling

    906 - definitely a scorpion fly (order mecoptera), probably Panorpa communis but there are some similar rarer species.

    0898 - vapourer moth caterpillar

    0413 - I suspect this is a carabid or staphylinid larva but I'm not sure.
