Haliplus ruficollis © Udo Schmidt

A small family of 19 species in three genera. All species are aquatic, sometimes known as the crawling water-beetles.

The family is covered by the excellent RES Handbook by Garth Foster and Laurie Friday which has superseded Laurie Friday’s (1988) AIDGAP keys as the standard identification guide to the family.
