Plecoptera, or stoneflies, is a small order of hemimetabolous insects: according to our data, more than 3,497 species have been described so far in the world. The total number of species has enormously increased in the last 30 years (2,000 species estimated in 1976) and, if the trend continues, then it will nearly double in the near future. The order is divided into the suborders Arctoperlaria and Antarctoperlaria, and includes 16 families: 12 arctoperlarian and 4 antarctoperlarian. The… Expand

Stoneflies (Plecoptera) of Nevada
Abstract. Stoneflies (Plecoptera) are a dominant group in running freshwaters. We report 104 stonefly species from Nevada. The fauna contains species with Sierra Nevada—Cascade range affinities,Expand
Molecular systematics, evolution and zoogeography of the stonefly genus Siphonoperla (Insecta: Plecoptera, Chloroperlidae)
TLDR
Overall, the genus shows the highest levels of diversification in the Mediterranean and Southeast regions whereby at least some of the species found in Central Europe today may have persisted there in peri-glacial refugia throughout the Pleistocene. Expand
Ohio USA stoneflies (Insecta, Plecoptera): species richness estimation, distribution of functional niche traits, drainage affiliations, and relationships to other states
TLDR
The Ohio assemblage of Ohio stoneflies was assessed from over 4,000 records accumulated from 18 institutions, new collections, and trusted literature sources, finding that many rare species and several high quality stream reaches should be considered for greater protection. Expand
Plecoptera of Canada
TLDR
The biodiversity hotspot of Canadian stoneflies is British Columbia with at least 138 species, nearly 52% of all species known from Canada, and four families, the Perlodidae, Capniidae, Chloroperlidae, and Nemouridae, contain nearly 75% ofall species known to occur in Canada. Expand
Stoneflies (Insecta: Plecoptera) from Serra Bonita, Bahia, Brazil: new species and updated records.
TLDR
The number of known species of stoneflies recorded from Bahia State is 17, ten of these recorded from the Serra Bonita region, with one new gripopterygid species, Tupiperla bispoi n. Expand
Chapter 36 – Order Plecoptera
TLDR
This chapter presents the morphology of stoneflies and cover aspects of their ecology and behavior, and discusses sampling, rearing, and preservation of stonefly specimens. Expand
Vulnerable taxa of European Plecoptera (Insecta) in the context of climate change
TLDR
Not only are a great diversity of European stoneflies concentrated in the Alps, Pyrenees and Iberian Peninsula, but so are the most vulnerable taxa, representing the most threatened taxa. Expand

TLDR
This taxon sample includes representatives of all families, subfamilies and tribes of the North American fauna, providing the most complete molecular phylogenetic study of theNorth American Plecoptera to date. Expand
The evolutionary history of Trichoptera (Insecta): A case of successful adaptation to life in freshwater
TLDR
The evolutionary history of the caddisflies as well as timing their diversification are resolved, resolving many previously unrecognized phylogenetic affinities amongst extant families. Expand

BIOGEOGRAPHY AND ORIGINS OF THE NORTH AMERICAN STONEFLIES (PLECOPTERA)
TLDR
The Plecoptera of North America have four sources of origin, including an ancient eastern fauna shared with Europe before the formation of the North Atlantic Ocean, and several species migrated from the Bering Strait region, possibly from an Alaskan refugium. Expand

TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships and global distribution patterns suggest that evolution of the extant suborders started with the breakup of Pangaea, and there is evidence of extensive recent speciation in all parts of the world. Expand
