Upperside needed

Information on the appearance of the other side is needed to identify this to species ie the true upperside. Or better still a photograph which should be easy to get. Put it in a container with no water and it will usually sit upperside up. It wont come to any harm as these are air breathing insects. But keep your fingers away from the mouthparts as they have a nasty stabbing bite!
