Furthermore, on the basis of morphological characters, Mahner [10] proposed a hypothesis that the Nepomorpha (Cryptocerata) should be placed as the basal, sister taxon to the remaining Heteroptera which also coincided with the hypothesis of Shcherbakov and Popov [11], based on fossil morphological evidence, although in both cases unresolved relationships were notated among the remaining infra orders.

The water bugs belonging to the Nepomorpha infraorder include taxa previously placed either in the group of the Hydrocorisae [6-10] or in the group of the Cryptocerata [8, 11, 12].
The Nepomorpha (Hydrocorisae, Cryptocerata) represent some examples of modified labium in particular taxa that are evidently separated from the Corixidae.
