Came to U/V lights at night. Believe this Hydrophilid is in the Genus Hydrochus? Confirmation/correction, and further placement would be appreciated. Which also brings to question that some sources are putting Hydrochus in the family Hydrochidae and others or using Hydrophilidae as Bug Guide does. Which is the most current?
