FAMILY GERRIDAE  LEACH

AXEL O. BACHMANN AND SILVIA A. MAZZUCCONI

Gerridae  is the second richest family of semiaquatic bugs in Argentina, with 18 described species in 11 genera. Andersen (1982) classified the Gerridae  in eight subfamilies, of which Charmatometrinae  , Cylindrostethinae  , Gerrinae  , Halobatinae  , Rhagadotarsinae  , and Trepobatinae  are represented in the Argentinean fauna. Two tribes are currently recognized in the Gerrinae  , following the classification proposed by Andersen (1995): Gerrini  and Tachygerrini  , both of which are present in Argentina. The Halobatinae  are classified in two tribes ( Andersen and Weir 2004), and only the Halobatini  have been recorded from Argentina. Four tribes are currently recognized in the Trepobatinae ( Polhemus and Polhemus 2002)  , of which only the Metrobatini  and the Trepobatini  are recorded from the country.
