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.
That's really interesting! I have never noticed that.. Thanks for this piece of into >o<
