Ecological aspects of the pondskater Charmatometra bakeri Kirkaldi (Heteroptera: Gerridae) in the Cauca Valley

Ecological aspects of the pondskater Charmatometra bakeri Kirkaldi (Heteroptera: Gerridae) in the Cauca Valley

Revista Colombiana de Entomologia 18(2): 59-62

The ecology of C. bakeri was studied at 10 sites in the valley of the River Cauca, Colombia, at 1970 m in humid montane forest. C. bakeri is distributed in groups of adults and nymphs. They are sensitive to the movement caused by prey items falling into the water. Their diet is mainly composed of adults of Cercopidae (Heteroptera) and ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae).
