If only all field guides were this good

This app is a very helpful resource for the field identification of waterbugs. Great for citizen scientists, enthusiasts and freshwater ecologists in the field. There is also lots of other useful information for each Waterbug including size, habitat, movement, confused with and SIGNAL scores.
Great work!!
