Posts: 1I was leading a Canoeing trip through Northern Minnesota and one of my students claimed they saw one of what is drawn in the picture in a little pond. The only picture we have is the one the student drew. Any guesses on what he saw?

Possibly Belostoma? The drawing wouldn't be quite right, but that's the closest thing that comes to mind. I might be missing some obscure beetle larva options though.
