Can anyone help identify the species? Caught during a pond dipping event with CMC Dream team.
No interactions present.
It's a water beetle larvae but I don't know what species.

Wow, we had all assumed it was a dragonfly nymph as it was so big. but then it did have big pincers at the front rather than the usual dragonfly nymph mask which did make me wonder.
Sorry Chris, I didn't see your earlier comment.
No problem Richard, I often miss comments as they are off the visible computer screen, easily done. Regards Chris.
