According to Weirauch and Schuh (2011: 492) "Gerromorpha, or semiaquatic
bugs, have achieved model status in Heteroptera systematics thanks to the early (from 1980's onward) and rigorous efforts of Nils Moller Andersen."
Thus, a semiaquatic
mammal is at the same time either 'semiterrestrial' or 'semisubterranean' or both.
Bullfrogs are semiaquatic
, and they are usually observed at the margins of permanent ponds or rivers.
Like most semiaquatic
bugs, all Limnoporus species have five larval instars, which can be considered as homologous ontogenetic stages (Andersen 1982).
Andrew Rutter, wildlife biologist with the Lake County Forest Preserve District, discusses the successful reintroduction of the semiaquatic
mammals that has led to a rebound in their population throughout Illinois as well as the district's monitoring program to document the diversity and abundance of wildlife in Lake County.

Quantitative data on the feeding impact and the amount consumed by semiaquatic
grasshoppers in their natural habitat are practically non-existent.
