Remains of a Predaceous Diving Beetle

Dear Rhonda,
You have discovered the remains of a Predaceous Diving Beetle in the family Dytiscidae, possibly a Harris’s Diving Beetle,
Dytiscus harrisii, which we found pictured on BugGuide.  A bird or other predator has eaten the soft, nutritious abdomen and left the harder, less edible parts like the head, thorax and elytra for you to find.
