Abstract

The taxonomy of the Mexican fauna of the family Belostomatidae is summarized and is fairly complete for most genera. Currently, at least 23 species and two subspecies from four genera and two subfamilies have been recorded from the country. Species richness is distributed in the subfamilies Belostomatinae: Abedus Stål (11 species and a subspecies), Belostoma Latreille (six species and a subspecies); and Lethocerinae: Benacus Stål (one species), Lethocerus Mayr (five species). A comprehensive species distribution list with new state records for the species Abedus breviceps Stål and A. stangei Menke, as well as a key to the subfamilies and genera of Belostomatidae from Mexico are provided.
