Faunistics of stoneflies (Plecoptera) in Finnmark, northern Norway, including DNA barcoding of Nemouridae

  title={Faunistics of stoneflies (Plecoptera) in Finnmark, northern Norway, including DNA barcoding of Nemouridae},
  author={Louis Boumans and John E. Brittain},
During a large-scale survey in the Norwegian county of Finnmark in 2010, insects were collected with Malaise traps and manual collecting techniques. Almost 6000 specimens of stoneflies collected during this survey are reviewed, and the incidence and abundance of the northern Scandinavian species are discussed. The species composition at the sites of the Malaise traps is explained by stream characteristics like width and velocity, rather than the altitude and continentality of the trap sites… Expand

Introgression and species demarcation in western European Leuctra fusca (Linnaeus, 1758) and L. digitata Kempny, 1899 (Plecoptera: Leuctridae)
Phylogenetic analyses of the mitochondrial (mt) DNA barcode marker COI and the nuclear marker 28S show that the shared haplotypes in northernmost Scandinavia must result from the introgression of a L. fusca mitochondrion into a Leuctra digitata population on at least two occasions, the first documented case in Plecoptera.

Ecological speciation by temporal isolation in a population of the stonefly Leuctra hippopus (Plecoptera, Leuctridae)
An atypical population of the stonefly Leuctra hippopus at a site in central Norway, the Isterfoss rapids, is studied and it is concluded that this population is in the process of sympatric speciation, with temporal isolation being the most important direct barrier to gene flow. Expand
DNA barcoding of aquatic insects reveals unforeseen diversity and recurrent population divergence patterns through broad-scale sampling in northern Canada
Arctic and subarctic environments are among the most inaccessible regions in the world, making biological surveys difficult to conduct. Thus, the insect fauna of these regions has remainedExpand
Toward a comprehensive COI DNA barcode library for Swiss Stoneflies (Insecta: Plecoptera) with special emphasis on the genus Leuctra
The establishment of a DNA barcode library for Plecoptera, taxa that are of great importance as bioindicators of water quality and that often present difficulties in species-level identification for larvae and female specimens, is reported on. Expand
Erratum to: DNA barcoding of aquatic insects reveals unforeseen diversity and recurrent population divergence patterns through broad-scale sampling in northern Canada
This study exemplifies how large-scale DNA-based surveys can be combined with phylogeographic inference to better understand the biodiversity and natural history of northern aquatic insect communities. Expand
A DNA barcode library for Germany′s mayflies, stoneflies and caddisflies (Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Trichoptera)
Both maximum pairwise and nearest neighbour distances were substantially higher for Ephemeroptera compared to Plecoptera and Trichoptera, possibly indicating older speciation events, stronger positive selection or faster rate of molecular evolution. Expand
High cryptic diversity in aquatic insects: an integrative approach to study the enigmatic Leuctra inermis species group (Plecoptera)
Within the genus Leuctra (Plecoptera: Leuctridae) the L. inermis species group comprises 17 – 18 species in which males lack the characteristic tergal abdominal ornamentation of many Leuctra species,Expand
Reinstatement of Leuctra biellensis Festa, 1942 (Plecoptera, Leuctridae)
Both molecular and morphologic characters support the reinstatement of Leuctra biellensis Festa, 1942 as a valid species distinct from Leuctra nigra (Olivier, 1811). Genetic distances between L.Expand


Zoogeographical studies on Fennoscandian stoneflies (Plecoptera)
In Fennoscandia the highest number of different stonefly species have been recorded from areas north of the polar circle and in the continental parts of the boreal and subalpine vegetation belts, while in Norway the lowest number have beenrecorded from the coastal areas and on the islands. Expand
The Natural History Museum, University of Oslo (NHM) houses a very large ethanol collection of Norwegian stoneflies. About half of this material is sorted and labelled; the other half consists ofExpand
Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera, and Trichoptera fauna of Churchill (Manitoba, Canada): insights into biodiversity patterns from DNA barcoding
The ways in which patterns of intraspecific and interspecific genetic divergences in the barcode region can provide rapid insights into the taxonomic identity, morphological features, and geographical distributions of species are considered. Expand
Insects inhabiting freshwater and humid habitats in Finnmark , northern Norway
A faunistic study of selected insect groups inhabiting freshwater and humid habitats in Finnmark, the northernmost part of mainland Norway was initiated in 2010. Fieldwork was conducted through threeExpand
Emergence and lateral dispersal of adult Plecoptera and Trichoptera from Broadstone Stream, U.K.
The three Malaise traps placed above the stream caught most of the stoneflies though there was also dispersal away from the channel, the numbers caught declining with distance, and Exponential models explained between 67% and 99% of the variation in numbers of individuals with distance from theChannel in the four common stoneflies.

Databasing the stoneflies (Plecoptera) at the Natural History Museum in Oslo reveals new Norwegian province records
In 2010 the metadata of the Plecoptera collection created by the late Albert Lillehammer at the Natural History Museum in Oslo (NHMO) were digitised and georeferenced. 4319 species records, mostly ofExpand
Amphinemura palmeni is a valid Holarctic stonefly species (Plecoptera: Nemouridae)
The taxonomic status of Amphinemura palmeni, a rare stonefly from northern Fennoscandia, was re-evaluated in a morphological study combined with analyses of mitochondrial COI and nuclear 28SExpand
A taxonomic revision of the genus Arcynopteryx Klapalek, 1904 Plecoptera, Perlodidae
Four known Arcynopteryx species are redescribed from the types and newly acquired material. Illustrations of the male andfemale genitalia, head and pronotal patterns and eggs are used to supportExpand
Diapause and quiescence in eggs of Systellognatha stonefly species (Plecoptera) occuring in alpine areas of Norway
Eggs of the stoneflies Diura bicaudata and Arcynopteryx compacta and Dinocras cephalotes not recorded above the sub-alpine, reacted differently to the same temperatures, enabling the species to survive outside its normal distribution area. Expand
