Evolution of Feeding and Case-Making Behavior in Trichoptera
A phylogeny of the families of Trichoptera is reviewed to provide a basis for understanding the probable evolution of feeding tactics and case or retreat constructions by larvae. At least 48…
A synonymy of the caddisfly genus Lepidostoma Rambur (Trichoptera: Lepidostomatidae), including a species checklist
- J. S. Weaver
An important consideration is the inability to discover reliable larval characters that are diagnostic for many of the proposed genera, subgenera, and species groups within the Lepidostomatidae, which can be recognized by their different larval cases and geographic distributions.
New species of Stenopsyche from the northeastern orient (Trichoptera: Stenopsychidae) 1
- J. S. Weaver
5 species previously described are herein placed in their respective species groups; and 4 new species of the marmorata group are described from Okinawa, Japan; Taiwan and Zhejiang, China.
First records of Cyclorhipidion fukiense (Eggers) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae: Xyleborini), an ambrosia beetle native to Asia, in North America.
The Asian ambrosia beetle, Cyclorhipidion fukiense (Eggers) was detected for the first time in North America based on three specimens trapped in 2012 from three localities in South Carolina and two…
PHORETIC RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN CHIRONOMIDAE (DIPTERA) AND BENTHIC MACROINVERTEBRATES
Aquatic phoretic relationships were concluded to be relatively common in the regions studied, probably due in part to the prevalence of sand-bottomed streams.
Studies on the fauna of Trichoptera (Insecta) of Korea. iv. the family Lepidostomatidae
A review of the Lepidostomatidae of Korea is provided, and three new species D. myohyangsanicus, D. itoae and Indocrunoecia coreana are described herein.
The description of immature forms of Aphropsyche monticola flint (Trichoptera: Hydropsychidae)
Examination of larval, pupal, and adult specimens of Aphropsyche monticola Flint were collected from a locality in Pennsylvania and led to the association of the immature forms of the genus Aphrosyche by the metamorphotype method.
A new genus of Philorheithridae (Trichoptera) from Madagascar
The genus novum and three species of the family Philorheithridae (Trichoptera) are described from Madagascar, representing the first described philor heithrids from the Afrotropical Region.
A new species of Rhyacophila (Trichoptera, Rhyacophilidae) from Western Pennsylvania
REVISION OF THE CADDISFLY FAMILY UENOIDAE (TRICHOPTERA)
A instructive example of the importance of larvae in providing data for the systematics of Trichoptera, Neothremma and Farula are shown to share many synapomorphic larval characters with Uenoa; under close examination, characters of the adults support this relationship.
