To differentiate the water boatman from the backswimmer , I think the backswimmer has a white/lighter top.
Can anyone confirm this? I'm not entirely sure...

Hm.. That's interesting. I didn't know that. I just look at the size of the legs. If the back legs are wayyy longer, it's a backswimmer but of the middle and back legs are relatively the same size, it's a water boatman.

Well both of you were right but I think Cjkowalcz answered first, so your turn!

Question... If no one goes in a span of 24 hours, is it all right for me to take their turn? I would like to keep this going...

You can go right now. :> I mean, no one else seems to be going, and it's been two days.

Just for additional info, to differentiate, a boatman tends to have a wider head with wider, more ovalisk eyes and a pointed, beaklike protrusion between them. A backswimmer often has a head thinner than its thorax, and is therefore not flush with it. Their "paddle" legs are commonly the third pair whereas those of the boatman can be the second.
Road Scholar seems to depress everyone on my team who does it, but it's my favorite event...
