spottyback - Peltodytes shermani

spottyback - Peltodytes shermani
Hollis, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
June 24, 2005
Size: 4 mm approx.
On the move.

This one never quit moving till it died. Consequently I have no good live shots of it. Notice the absence of tarsal claws, replaced by long tarsal hairs for smimming/crawling underwater.
