Conservationis status

Aquarius remigis est species hemipterorum aquaticorum familiae Gerridarum.[2][3] Olim Gerris remigis appellabatur, sed subgenus Aquarius ad gradum genericum anno 1990 levatum est, secundum enodationem phylogeneticam.[4][5] Aquarius remigis per omnem Americam Septentrionalem, sed praecipue in regione medio occidentali Civitatum Foederatarum invenitur.[6]

DescriptioRecensere

Aquarius remigis usque ad dimidiam unciam et plus crescit, colore atrofuscus ad nigrum. Rostro acuto corpus praedae perforat et res intestinas exsugit.[7] Victus plerumque est larvae culicum subsuperficiales, insecta mortua in superficie inventa, et alia invertebrata quae in aquam cadunt.
