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.
