Hello, I found this bug close to my fish pond here in CT, at first I thought it was a waterbug, but the front legs look different from what I’ve seen before. It could fly, and it had a ungainly and awkward way of crawling. Never seen one of these before, is it a type of waterbug?
We just returned to the office to find 100s of identification requests, and we know we cannot ever read them all. We search for good subject lines, and though you originally requested our assistance, and we failed you, we are happy you did identify your Predaceous Diving Beetle and we are thrilled to be able to post your fine photograph.
