This study aims to complete the aquatic and semiaquatic Heteroptera (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Nepomorpha) list of species for Cefa Nature Park. Specimens were collected by monthly monitoring different types of habitats in the protected area. The study reveals an addition of 17 species, along with the 8 species previously described for this area. Was noted the presence of Aphelocheirus aestivalis Fabricius, 1794 and Cymatia rogenhoferi Fieber, 1864 species that have a sporadic presence in the Romanian fauna, being reported few records for these species. These data complete the information on this group collected on the other side of the Romanian-Hungarian border, in Körös-Maros National Park, where a number of 28 species were identified. Because the goal is to create a protected area on both sides of the border, it is imperative to know this group in both protected areas, in order to create a common monitoring plan and common management measures.
