Belostomatidae commonly called as giant water bug belongs to the infraorder Nepomorpha. Thirumalai (2007) recorded three species of the genus Diplonychus from India. These predatory insects feed on aquatic crustaceans, fishes, amphibians and mosquito larvae. The results of Saha (2007) reveal that a single adult of D. rusticus could consume 11-87 fourth instar larvae of Culex quinquefasciatus Say per day and D. annulatus consume 33-122 fourth ins tar larvae per day, depending upon the prey and… Expand

A comparative study of predation of three aquatic heteropteran bugs on Culex quinquefasciatus larvae
TLDR
The difference in predatory efficiency, CR, and PI values varied significantly among the three predators, indicating the possible difference in the function as predators occupying the same guild. Expand
Evaluating the use of predatory insects as bioindicators of metals contamination due to sugarcane cultivation in neotropical streams
TLDR
Cluster analysis, complemented by an ANOSIM test, clearly showed that Belostomatidae and Libellulidae are good potential bioindicators of metal contamination in streams located in areas with sugarcane cultivation and can be used in monitoring programmes. Expand
