Hydrophilidae Latreille, 1802 (Insecta: Coleoptera) is the most diverse family of Polyphaga with aquatic representatives. hydrophilid larva is much simpler, usually, than obtaining similar informa-tion from dytiscid material, since hydrophilids have macerating instead of suctorial mandibles and it is often possible to retrieve recognizable material from the gut contents for analysis.
