Date spotted is incorrect. Was around fall of 2010
These guys are incredible but can inflict a nasty bite!
I would be careful picking that up; I heard that their bite is extremely painful!
There was an error in the spotting location; it should have been Rochester, NY
I don't feel confident identifying this past the genus Lethocerus without more information about the animal. There are at least 3 species in the genus that occur in Florida and on the surface, they all appear similar. Go ahead and update this spotting when you have a moment. You can also change the spotting date in edit mode. :-)
