On the basis of recently collected specimens belonging to Odonata (Coenagrionidae, Aeshnidae, Gomphidae, and Libellulidae), Hemiptera (Corixidae and Notonectidae) and Diptera (Ceratopogonidae and Culicidae), new records and new localities of aquatic insects for the Somuncurá plateau and its area of influence (Argentinean Patagonia) are provided. Forty seven species in 20 genera are recorded, 25 of which for the first time from the area. Of them, 17 represent new records from Somuncurá, four from extra-andean Patagonia, one from Patagonia and three species are new to science. Two genera are recorded for the first time from Somuncurá, one of which is new from extra-andean Patagonia. The identity of five species previously recorded is established. Taking into account the preliminary inventory and recent bibliography, the total number of aquatic insects registered from the Somuncurá plateau increases to 104 species, grouped in 53 genera.
