Remarks. No records have been confirmed for Romania. All the specimens examined, recorded as G. gibbifer  by Horváth (1897), Benedek (1970), Schneider (1973) and Kis (1976), from this country have been proven to belong to G. maculatus  (see below). Furthermore, the material by Kertész (1890, 1901) and Szilády (1908) was unavailable for review, while specimens by Bucșa (1970), Ilie & Olosutean (2009), Olosutean et al. (2009) and Olosutean & Ilie (2010c) have been lost. The records of G. gibbifer  by Horváth (1897) and Csongor (1956) in Hungary also refer to G. maculatus  , whereas specimens by Vellay (1899), Kondorosy & Harmat (1997) and Kondorosy & Földessy (1998) were not available for review. Horváth’s (1897) record of G. gibbifer  from Slovenia also refers to G. maculatus  , as well as all the material seen from Albania, Croatia, Greece, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, European Turkey, Algeria and Tunisia (see below). Some other records of G. gibbifer  from Serbia even belong to other taxa (e.g., the more distantly related G. thoracicus  ).

Gerris gibbifer  is probably univoltine ( Nieser 1981) and monomorphic long-winged, rarely short-winged (submacropterous) ( Andersen 1993).

Distribution. West Palaearctic and widespread in western and central Europe ( Andersen 1995; Cianferoni et al. 2013); most eastern records and those from north Africa are doubtful and probably refer to G. maculatus  (see Andersen 1995, Taybi et al. in prep.). In southeastern Europe, its range reaches northern Croatia, northern Hungary and southwestern Ukraine ( Drogvalenko & Konovalov 2016, this paper) (see Fig. 11View FIGURE 11).
