Abstract

In the present study, a total of eight species of aquatic and semi-aquatic Hemiptera collected from India were identified based on morphology and mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase gene I (COI). Details of morphology based identification and the utility of COI gene to identify the aquatic Hemiptera is discussed in this paper.
