Cobben  has reported that apical plates can be found in several taxa such as the Saldidae, Microphysidae, Dipsocoridae
, Enicocephalidae, Reduviidae, Nabidae, Miridae, and all Gerromorpha.
On the morphology and classification of the family Dipsocoridae
Nieser (1973, 1977) enriched Alayo's list by adding one family (Dipsocoridae
), three genera (Cryptostemma Herrich-Schaffer, 1835; Eurygerris Hungerford & Matsuda, 1958; and Corisella Lundblad, 1928), and six species.
The authors include Gerromorpha, known as the true aquatic bugs, and Nepomorpha, known as the semi aquatic bugs, as well as Leptopodomorpha (which includes Saldidae, shore bugs) and Dipsocoromorpha (which includes Dipsocoridae
, jumping ground bugs).
First record of Dipsocoridae
(Hemiptera) from Australla with the description of four new species of Co,ptostemma Herrich-Schaeffer.
