Veliidae

    Riffle Bugs.  All Australian species of this family live on the surface of still or running freshwater or in marine intertidal areas where they feed on small crustaceans and insects. Some veliids may concentrate in schools on running water where the flow of the water will bring potential prey items within reach.

All species pictured have their DNA in the Barcode of Life Database.
