Diversity and distribution of SE Asian inland water sponges is reported on the basis of available literature and a recent biodiversity assessment of the Lower Mekong basin, with the highest diversity recorded from Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, and Myanmar.
Catastrophic flooding and macroinvertebrate community structure
Life history patterns of stream-dwelling caddis
Intraspecific variation in development rates, the wide range of size classes present at one time, the ability to overwinter in different larval stages and the asynchronous extended flight periods may be evidence of a spreading of risk within life histories.

Hampered by incomplete taxonomic knowledge of benthic macroinvertebrates in Thailand, family-level identification may be sufficient taxonomic resolution for rapid bioassessment in Thailand.
Biodiversity assessment in the Lower Mekong basin: First record of the genus Oncosclera (Porifera: Spongillina: Potamolepidae) from the Oriental Region
The description of a new species from the Pong River (NE Thailand, Oriental Region) in the framework of a biodiversity assessment in the Lower Mekong Basin, which differs from all the other known species of the genus in its unique combination of diagnostic traits.
Biodiversity Assessment Of The Lower Mekong Basin: A New Species Of Corvospongilla (Porifera: Spongillina: Spongillidae) From Thailand
The new species Corvo- spongilla siamensis nov. sp. differs from all the other known species of the genus in its unique combination of diagnostic traits, particularly a) acanthostrongyles (megascleres), b) gemmuloscleres, both in the cage and in the theca, as strongyles showing the tendency towards ring-shape and button-like shape.
Description of nymphs and female subimago of Sparsorythus multilabeculatus Sroka Soldán, 2008 (Ephemeroptera: Tricorythidae) associated with male imago based on DNA sequence data.
Male and female nymphs, female subimago and egg are described for the first time and Phylogenetic analysis based on Maximum Likelihood indicated that all unknown specimens are conspecific with male imagines of S. multilabeculatus.
The length-weight relationships, condition factors and gut contents of Syncrossus helodes (Sauvage, 1876) and Yasuhikotakia modesta (Bleeker, 1864) from the Mekong River, Muang District, Nong Khai…
It was concluded that S. helodes and Y. modesta are carnivores from the Mekong River and both exhibited positive and negative allometric growth in the dry-hot and thedry-cool season, respectively.
The alderfly genus Indosialis Lestage, 1927 (Megaloptera: Sialidae) in Thailand and Laos, with a description of a new species.
The pupal stage of Indosialis siamensis is reported here for the first time and the new species coexists with I. bannaensis in Loei Province, northeastern Thailand.
