Sigara, abdomen under side view
Sigara falleni
Lesser Water Boatman, aft point

On this picture we are looking from down under to the aft point of Sigara falleni, a small Lesser Water Boatman species. Note the long hairs on this point, an opening in the air bubble at the aft and two micro-organisms on the margin,possibly a silicon algae species: Rhoicosphenia curvata. With a little more difficulty you may see part of the under side of the front wings: they are wider than the abdomen.
