Hi there Bugman,
My mate found this insect in the river in south BC.
I’ve been looking everywhere online to find out what this insect is. Not much result! However, the closest thing that has come up is the picture on your website right under “TOP TEN” on the left side bar.
Could you please tell us what it is?
Thanks mucho and much bug love!
The image on our homepage is an Earwig, and though your creature shares some similarities, they are not closely related. Your insect is an aquatic nymph, the naiad of a Stonefly. Your individual looks very similar to this BugGuide image submitted from Alberta, Canada.
