Living in Spring Hill, Florida we sometimes get water bugs but I have never seen thus before?
This sure looks like a Cockroach molting to us. The exoskeleton of an insect is rigid and does not expand, so when it is time for an insect to grow or metamorphose, it splits its skin and emerges with a new exoskeleton that allows it to increase in size or to change its appearance. The new exoskeleton if often lighter in color until it hardens and darkens.
