Gerris (Gerris) maculatus Tamanini, 1946  *

Material examined. Safsaf, 0 1.0 3.17, 1 m, 1 f.

Distribution. West Palearctic species. In Morocco, it is probable that G. maculatus  has been frequently confused with G. gibbifer Schummel, 1832  ( Berchi et al. 2018a); thus, a review of the records citing the latter species should be performed to confirm its presence in Morocco and to improve the knowledge of the distribution of G. maculatus  in this country. In the study area, G. maculatus  was previously cited at Taforalt spring ( Chavanon et al. 2004) as G. gibbifer  . During the sampling period of this study, G. maculatus  was found at Lower Moulouya ( Fig. 3 View Figure ).
