General Description

By Nora Bryan

The Acilius Diving Beetles can be found in natural ponds in Alberta.

These small 13 mm (1/2 in.) lozenge-shaped beetles are superlative swimmers. The three Alberta species can be told from the many other small Diving Beetles by the crescent-shaped pale mark at the end of their shiny elytra. The pronotum (the bit behind the head) is coloured with a broad yellow band.
