Are There Separate Populations of Halobates in the Gulf of Mexico?
Abstract:Various developmental stages of the pelagic insect Halobates micans were sorted from four series of neuston samples collected in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea by different institutions during various expeditions. Studies on seasonal occurrences and comparisons of developmental stage compositions suggest that in the Gulf of Mexico there is probably an indigenous population which presumably overwinters as eggs and may complete two or three generations each year between March and November.
