The ‘Aquatic bugs’ category covers those invertebrates that either live in or on water, or are dependent on water for their lifecycle. These include pond skaters, water measurers, water boatmen, crayfish, crabs, jellyfish, shellfish, and octopi.
Water snails, dragonflies, mayflies, stoneflies, mosquitoes or water beetles should not be included here, but in other categories. However, you can include their larvae in this category, as it is dependent on water.
If you need to clarify whether a species not mentioned here should be included in this category, email email@example.com.
