Moved
Moved from Predaceous Diving Beetles.

Fairly certain of the species ID. For future reference, the hind coxal processes are important when identifying Hydroporinae adults. When possible, it's good to leave them visible.

 
Thank you Brady..
When you are so kind to assist, I think of Sept. evening night collecting in Arizona. Thanks again.

 
No problem
Running into you and Jerry last fall was a highlight for that trip.
