Notonectidae (Backswimmers) True Bug Adult Pictures

This true bug was collected from unknown on May 18th, 2004 and added to Troutnut.com on January 25th, 2006.

I couldn't get this backswinner to sit still in the water long enough to let me photograph its "top" side, so I had to pull it out of the water.  Notonectidae (Backswimmers) Backswimmer Adult from unknown in Wisconsin

The specimen is right-side-up, but dead, in this picture.  The isopropyl alcohol I used to kill it also immediately discolored it.  Notonectidae (Backswimmers) Backswimmer Adult from unknown in Wisconsin
