Abstract The Neotropical caddisfly (Trichoptera) fauna is cataloged from a review of over 1,000 literature citations through 2015 (partial 2016) to include 3,262 currently recognized, valid species-group names in 25 families and 155 extant genera. Fourteen subspecies are included in the total as well as 35 fossil species and 1 fossil genus. The region covered includes all of Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and South America. Genus-group and species-group synonyms are listed. For each…

Taxonomic Catalog of the Brazilian Fauna: order Trichoptera (Insecta), diversity and distribution

The accumulation curve of species described or recorded from the country, by year, shows a strong upward trend in last 25 years, indicating that it is possible that there are many more species to be described.

Diversity and distribution of the Caddisflies (Insecta: Trichoptera) of Ecuador

The first list of Trichoptera known from Ecuador is presented, a country that harbors two global biodiversity “hotspots” and Hydroptilidae and Hydropsychidae were the most species rich families.

A revision of the Neotropical caddisfly genus Ascotrichia Flint, 1983 (Trichoptera, Hydroptilidae)

A revision of the microcaddisfly genus Ascotrichia (Trichoptera, Hydroptilidae) is provided, including a generic diagnosis, illustrations, and descriptions of males. This genus is endemic to the

New species of the endemic Neotropical caddisfly genus Contulma from the Andes of Ecuador (Trichoptera: Anomalopsychidae)

Three new species of Contulma are described and illustrated from the Andes of Ecuador, including adults of three new species, which are similar to previously described species from the region, including C. paluguillensis, C. nevada, and C. lancelolata.

A New Species of Limnephilus (Insecta: Trichoptera: Limnephilidae) from China, with Revision of the Genus Limnephilus on the Chinese Mainland

A new species of the genus Limnephilus was found in China and the adult females, larvae, and pupae of this new species were associated with the adult males based on COI sequencing, and all the life stages except for the egg stage are described and illustrated.

The Trichoptera of Panama VIII. The Hydroptilidae of Panama: current status, biodiversity comparisons, projections, and needs

A minimum of 300 microcaddisflies species and 550 total caddisfly species will be recorded for Panama within the next 10 years according to recent work, and the greatest need is for training of native Panamanians in cAddisfly systematics and biogeography.

Fourteen new species of Oecetis McLachlan, 1877 (Trichoptera: Leptoceridae) from the Neotropical region

Eight of the new species presented here could not be reliably placed in one of the known species groups and are placed in the punctata-group, and the shape of tergum X is focused on.

Two new species of the rare Neotropical caddisfly genus Amphoropsyche Holzenthal (Trichoptera, Leptoceridae)

Two new species in the rare, endemic Neotropical caddisfly genus Amphoropsyche Holzenthal, 1985 are described from Ecuador and Peru, bringing to 17 the number of species known in the genus.



Studies of Neotropical Caddisflies, XXXIII: New Species from Austral South America (Trichoptera)

One hundred ten new species and one new genus of caddisflies from southern South America are described and figured and a key to all the known families of South American Trichoptera is presented.

A revision of the genus Leptonema Guérin (Trichoptera, Hydropsychidae, Macronematinae)

The genus Leptonema Guerin is revised, resulting in 105 species being recognized, 2 of which are composed of 2 subspecies each, 2 additional species being placed to species group only, and 2 more species remaining nomina dubia.

Order Trichoptera Kirby, 1813 (Insecta), Caddisflies*

The taxonomy, diversity, and distribution of the aquatic insect order Trichoptera, caddisflies, are reviewed and a discussion of phylogenetic studies within the order is presented, including higher classification of the suborders and superfamilies, based on recent literature.

Global diversity of caddisflies (Trichoptera: Insecta) in freshwater

An analysis of the 2001 TWC list of present-day Trichoptera diversity at species, generic/subgeneric and family level along the selected Afrotropical, Neotropical, Australian, Oriental, Nearctic and Palaearctic regions reveals uneven distribution patterns.

Nomenclatural and systematic changes in the Neotropical caddisflies ( Insecta: Trichoptera)

Rationales are presented for all actions, many of which had been known for years as the result of examination of types, but no opportunity had arisen to publish them, and others became apparent as a result of the cataloging.

The Trichoptera of Panama. III. Updated species list for caddisflies (Insecta: Trichoptera) in the Republic of Panama.

The fauna of Panama is species-rich due to its location and topography, and the resulting diversity of microclimates and habitats. The last summary of information about the caddisfly fauna (Insecta:

A Review of the Genus Oecetis (Trichoptera: Leptoceridae) in the Northeastern Region of Brazil with the Description of 5 New Species

Five new species are described, additional characters for diagnosing seven of the species recorded from Brazil, new distributional records, and a dichotomous key to the Brazilian species are provided.

Arthropods of Hispaniola (Dominican Republic and Haiti): A checklist and bibliography

This work is a first attempt to integrate into one list and quantify all the known species of Hispaniolan arthropods. It includes all the terrestrial and surrounding marine arthropod species (plus

The Neotropical caddisfly genus Tolhuaca (Trichoptera: Glossosomatidae)

Characters of the female genitalia, wing venation, and thorax suggest that Tolhuaca is more primitive than any other protoptiline genus and probably deserves a basal placement within the subfamily.

The Neotropical caddisfly genus Canoptila (Trichoptera: Glossosomatidae)

There are three possible synapomorphies supporting the monophyly of Canoptila: 1) the presence of long spine-like posterolateral processes on tergum X; 2) the highly membranous digitate parameres on the endotheca; and 3) the unique combination of both forewing and hind wing venational characters.
