Neogerris lubricus (White, 1879)

Limnogonus lubricus White, 1879b : Jour. Linn. Soc. Lond., 489.

Neogerris lubricus: Nieser & Alkins-Koo, 1991 : Occas. Pap. Dept. Zool. Univ. West Indies, 71.

General distribution. Costa Rica, Panama, the Lesser Antilles, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana, Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina ( Takiya et al. 2016; Motta et al. 2018; Pacheco-Chaves et al. 2018; Morales et al. 2021).

Habitat. Neogerris lubricus has usually been found in the margins of pools, ponds, lagoons, lakes, marshes, ditches and reservoirs exposed to sunlight and with floating and emergent vegetation ( Nieser 1970b, 1994; Nieser & Melo 1997; Aristizábal-García 2002; Melo & Nieser 2004). It has also been collected in streams, rivers, and very slow-flowing stretches of streams ( Nieser 1970b, 1994; Aristizábal-García 2002; Franco et al. 2020; Rodrigues et al. 2021b), as well as in stagnant waterbodies in and near lotic habitats (potholes in streams; pools along dry streams) ( Melo & Nieser 2004; Dias-Silva et al. 2013). This species also has been taken at lights ( White 1879b; Moreira et al. 2011c).

At the INR, specimens were collected from the margins of the Iberá Lagoon in shallow waters with emergent and floating vegetation (Estévez et al. 2003).
