Toe-Biter

Stop arguing Christine.  You are both wrong.  This is a Giant Water Bug, also known as a Toe-Biter or Electric Light Bug.  It is an aquatic predator that can also fly quite well.  Close relatives from Thailand are quite large and are considered delicacies.  They are sold on the street by food vendors there.  Toe-Biters are among our most frequent identification requests.
