Not an aquatic invertebrate, but I am still interested. If it was up to me, I'd name it diptera big birdicus

Need a bug id. Found in Western Maryland.
Wheelbug. It is in order Hemiptera
Thought this was appropriate, wheelbug porn
I got bitten by one of those wheel bugs once, one of the more painful bites from any bug I have ever experienced. Bastard had climbed into one of my work gloves that I had left on the porch rail. It apparently didn't like me sticking my hand in there. It quickly became a flatbug.
My BIL got nailed on his knee in his yard. That was why I asked what the hell it was.
There's a related one in South and Central America, the cone-nosed kissing bug, that bites people while they're sleeping, and carries the Chagas disease.
