Predaceous Diving Beetle

6410. Found this on the ground in this state. unsure of what it is? almost looks like a cockroach. Edmonton, Alberta. Canada

 

Number 6410. This is a very dead predaceous diving beetle (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae) that has lost all its legs. These are general predators on small aquatic life forms; they are strong fliers and often are found quite some distance from the nearest water.
