Martarega White, 1879 is a small genus of Notonectidae with 20 described species. Individuals of this genus occur in the Western Hemisphere with records from the southern United States to Argentina. In Brazil, we find 14 species. Distribution records of Martarega have a gap in 11 states of Brazil. The State of Mato Grosso has three species, Martarega gonostyla, M. chinai and M. bentoi. This work raised to five the number of species recorded in this state: M. bentoi, M. brasiliensis, M. chinai, M. gonostyla, and M. membranacea.
