Diving Beetle

Hi Greg,
We believe this is a Predaceous Diving Beetle in the Family Dytiscidae and furthermore, we are fully confident that mardikavana will be providing us with confirmation and perhaps even a species identification.

    This is indeed a female Dytiscus sp. but without seeing the down side it is impossible to identify it. My best guess would the great diving beetle, Dytiscus marginalis.
