Scientific name: Corixa sp.
(Hemiptera: Corixidae)

Facts: Water boatmen are commonly confused with backswimmers since they superficially resemble them. All water boatmen have a striped pattern across the back and they swim with the wing side up. Water boatmen are generally smaller than backswimmers. They are algae eaters and are unlikely to bite collectors.
