River Lady / Jenny Greenteeth

So this would be the female counterpart to the danish river man "Åmanden".
In english folklore she's called Jenny/Jinny/Jeannie/Ginny Greenteeth, and she is a greenskinned river hag, who is known to pull children or elderly under the water and drown them.
In my version, however, she seems to prey on young people enjoying romantic boat trips.
