Size: rougly 1.5 to 2 inches
Captured in a dip net with some stickleback. Very soft, as if it just molted, so I didn't pick it up for a photo. In light emergent vegetation in a warm-water ditch, with kind of nasty water from runoff.

Moved from Lethocerinae.

Moved from Giant Water Bugs.

Moved from ID Request.
