Good day Bugman.
I found this little guy in the bottom of a bucket at our camp on the weekend. Could you tell me what he is? It looks alien 🙂

Dear C.A. Brown,
This is the Naiad of a Stonefly. A Naiad is an aquatic larva that eventually becomes a winged adult. We cannot tell you the exact family, but this Naiad somewhat resembles this Common Stonefly Naiad from BugGuide.
