The Neotropical genus Anacroneuria (Perlidae) is represented by more than 300 species. Among the Brazilian Anacroneuria, only the nymphs of two species have been described. In this paper, we described the nymph of A. ofaye Froehlich and an apparatus for rearing this genus. This is the first record of A. ofaye from Parana State, Brazil.

Description of immatures and association with adults of three species of Anacroneuria Klapálek (Plecoptera: Perlidae) of the Brazilian Amazon.
Nymphs of three species of the genus Anacroneuria Klapálek are described and the known geographical distribution in Brazil of these three species was expanded.
Perlidae (Plecoptera) from the Paranapiacaba Mountains, Atlantic Forest, Brazil: Diversity and implications of the integrative approach and teneral specimens on taxonomy
The results suggest that the development of an integrative taxonomy is essential to continue advancing the study of Perlidae diversity in South America and indicate that the color of adult teneral specimens differs from that of mature specimens.
DNA-based Identification and Descriptions of Immatures of Kempnyia Klapálek (Insecta:Plecoptera) from Macaé River Basin, Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil
Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) barcode (cytochrome c oxidase subunit I [COI) sequences have been used to associate adult and immature stages of stoneflies as a rapid and effective alternative to rearing immatures for Neotropical species, which have very few described immature stages.

Effect of land use on the composition, diversity and abundance of insects drifting in neotropical streams.
The species composition can be considered as the best predictor of impacts on the drifting insect community, due to the replacement of specialist species by generalist species in the urban stream.
Effect of land use on the composition , diversity and abundance of insects drifting in neotropical streams
Streams may exhibit differences in community structure of invertebrate drift, which may be a reflex of variation in environmental factors, able to change in conditions of anthropogenic interventions.
Land use effects on the functional structure of aquatic insect communities in Neotropical streams
This work investigated the influence of different land uses (agriculture and urbanization) on taxonomic and functional diversity of aquatic insects in drift samples from Neotropical streams, using the Shannon-Wiener diversity index and Rao’s quadratic entropy index to measure functional diversity.

The nymph of Anacroneuria debilis (Pictet, 1841) (Plecoptera: Perlidae)
The nymph of Anacroneuria debilis is described, being the first immature of this genus described in Brazil, and can be distinguished from other described nymphs by the presences of a row of fine, long bristles along the tibia.
