Where/how did you find it?
I presume it was in a water body of some sort, right?

Sure. Ballinger Creek to the East of Palmyra, Va. Are we supposed to note the stream?


No stream name requirements :-)
I'm just curious about the circumstances of finding specimens, including micro-habitat, collection tools or methods, etc. I tend to write and write on my submissions because I think others might find it interesting.
