About this book

Hemiptera – Heteroptera encompasses the three well-defined suborders of the true bugs which are adapted to an aquatic or littoral habitat.

Encyclopedia of South American Aquatic Insects: Hemiptera - Heteroptera begins with a section on the biology these insects and provides illustrations of the basic features of their morphology and outlines the larval development. Brief outlines of the ecological and zoogeographical peculiarities of the three aquatic suborders are presented individually, and various methods for observing, collecting, preserving, rearing, and examining specimens are discussed.

Most of the book is devoted to keys for the identification of adults to species, and notes are provided that will help recognize the known larvae. Also includes distribution data, known synonyms and current status information.
