Immature Stages of Nepidae


Detailed information on immature stages of Nepidae is being acquired.  However, Clausen (1940) noted that they are mostly aquatic, feeding mainly on insects and a variety of the smaller animal life in ponds and streams.  Some larger ones even prey on tadpoles and small fish.
