Found this in the swamp, struggling in the water. Lobrathium grande?

Thanks, Adam!
Good to know I got the ID right. Nice to hear from a fellow entomologist from UoG! Cheers, Stephen

That's right
Size and habitus make this a nice species to ID. Good for you for getting out to the Arb, I haven't been yet this spring :( - I may go this weekend to collect some staphs.
