So about a month before spring down in holt, Florida my pals an I were doin alittle fishing. We threw the cricket cage out to try to catch Minos for bait. When we pulled the cage in the weirdest bug I’ve seen in the water so far was sitting on the rim of it. None of us knew what it was and it peaked my interest so automatically I took a picture or two before my friends tried to leave me. Sorry I don’t have more pictures but if it is new id like to claim it.

Hi Travis,
We are sorry to disappoint you, but Damselfly Naiads, the aquatic nymphs of an insect related to the Dragonfly, are not a new ID, and different species are found throughout the globe.  We cannot provide you with the species for this Damselfly Naiad, but we can direct you to an image on BugGuide that looks very similar.
