These Predaceous Diving Beetle adults were collected in a kick-net sample from a W. WA foothills river. Although adults, they are barely more than 2mm in length, and have really incredible swimming speed for their size. Although they have been identified to genera as Oreodytes, I am hoping a Dytiscid expert will see this post, and be identify them to species.

Best regards,
