Third image Notonecta (Notonecta) glauca for comparison.
No interactions present.
The markings are perfect, and I think you can see the projecting anterior corners of the pronotum, although they're partly hidden by the eyes.
Thanks for the confirmation Joe. Point of interest, it was carrying a whole load of the little nymphs seen far bottom right. I am sure there is no connection, but..?

I don't think this is viridis. The markings are in the wrong place and there is no hint of the x shape which the dark markings have. The first indication I always have with viridis is the green colour of the legs and head and again no hint of that. The points on the pronotum are not apparent to me. So I think it's just a glauca. Nymph in picture is a gerrid
I've got to say I have little experience with the aquatic hets, so I'm not going to disagree too much here. I thought I could see the points on the pronotum, but looking again, that may have been wishful thinking after seeing the markings as being right. So yes, you're probably right... I've removed my agreement with viridis, at any rate.
Definitely agree on the gerrid nymph. :o)
Sticking with viridis, will however collect a specimen.
I see there are three photographs showing whilst there was only one this morning. I do agree that 218 is clearly viridis but the first one still doesnt look quite right for me
Your probably aware of the carousel glitch, if not you are now.
