1st instar from Olympia - Ranatra fusca

1st instar from Olympia - Ranatra fusca
Olympia, Thurston County, Washington, USA
August 29, 2011
Size: 8mm
Size excludes breathing tubes.

Moved from Ranatra.

R. fusca
I would say all these are R. fusca based on distribution (it's the only species found this far west)..though I don't know how to tell species from immature specimens.

Please see
other individual in this series - I have adult pictures too.
