Saldidae

    Shore Bugs.  As their common name suggests they frequent the edges of water bodies such as stream and ponds, though some prefer a terrestrial habitat. Some species have been shown to be able to survive submerged for some time without the use of an oxygen bubble surrounding the insect.
