Found in swimming pool - Phengodes - Male
Yorkville, Racine County, Wisconsin, USA
July 7, 2017
First time seeing one of these on our property in SE Wisconsin. It was removed from an above ground chlorinated swimming pool -- appeared dead. After 2 hours, it is making some movements in a container indoors. Hopefully I'll be able to release it in good shape.

He made a full recovery!
...and was released far from the pool.
