Brief history of Cuban aquatic and semiaquatic Heteroptera: In the 19th century, the classic work of Guerin-Meneville (1857) listed 14 species (not including synonyms and misidentified species) of aquatic and semiaquatic Heteroptera from Cuba, belonging to the families Saldidae, Gerridae, Hydrometridae, Veliidae, Belostomatidae, Corixidae, Naucoridae, Nepidae, and Notonectidae.
Although we did not conduct aquatic sampling, seven aquatic and semi-aquatic families (Belostomatidae, Corixidae, Gelastocoridae, Gerridae, Hydrometridae, Nepidae, and Notonectidae) were represented.
schuhi were collected from the second, shallow stream, in company with other aquatic Heteroptera species including Ranatra lansburyi Chen, Nieser and Ho (Nepidae), Metrocoris nigrofascioides Chen and Nieser (Gerridae), Hydrometra longicapitis Torre-Bueno (Hydrometridae), and Enithares intha Paiva (Notonectidae).
