It has been stated that Belostomatidae are often attracted to light (e.g. Imms, 1957: 466; Miller, 1956: 139) hut there appear to be very few numerical records of the occurrence of species of Belostomatidae at light. Southwood (1960a: 115) does not record any Belostomatidae from a light trap run at Tafo, Ghana, and the same author (1960b: 199) records only one specimen of his family from a trap run at Kawanda Research Station, Uganda.
