Hydaticus seminiger de Geer
Hydaticus seminiger de Geer, male

Like more animals on this website this medium sized beetle was living in my little gardenpond. By the suckingdiscs at its frontlegs you can see it's a male. This beetle is not uncommon. Hydaticus transversalis differs form this species by a yellow stripe across (transverse) the elytra. This beetle is also a member of the dytiscidae family.
