During the last years, the knowledge about aquatic heteropterous have widely increased, mainly with the description of new species of genera Rhagovelia, Paravelia, Tachygerris, Potamobates, Buenoa, and Martarega (Padilla-Gil 2009a, b; 2010,2011 a, b, c; 2012a, b, c; 2013a; Padilla-Gil and Nieser 2003; Padilla-Gil and Damgaard 2011; Padilla-Gil and Moreira 2011), most of species from south-western Colombia (Padilla-Gil and Arcos 2010; 2011; Padilla-Gil, 2012c, d), but information on several aspects of the biology of the species (Padilla-Gil 2013b), as their distribution (Padilla-Gil, 2013c; Padilla-Gil and Moreira 2013) among others, is still incomplete.
