Yes, indeed! I agree with this diagnosis, most probably these are Corixidae. I wonder if there is reference material in any of the bioacoustic archives! I vaguely remember some few publications with spectrograms. In any case, there is a lot of work to do!

This is a pretty cool recording. It sounds like a field of goldenrod in mid to late summer! -- maybe these are the sounds of stridulating aquatic beetles (hydrophilids, gyrinids, dytiscids?) and water bugs (corixids, nepids, notonectids?). Very little is known about sound production & communication within such underwater communities.
