We present new records of Gerromorpha and Leptopodomorpha (Insecta: Hemiptera: Heteroptera) from the Philippines (mainly from central Visayan islands and Mindoro) and comment on their habitats and endemism rates. The survey includes previously unidentified museum specimens and recent field collections.
Photos of several taxa and their habitats are provided and a checklist of Philippine coastal and marine Heteroptera is presented with comments on their distribution.
