  author={Lucas Ramos Costa Lima and W. D. Knapp and Loyana Docio},
This work presents a updated checklist of mayflies (Insecta: Ephemeroptera) from Bahia State, including new records of species based on collections performed between 2013 and 2014 in the Rio Grande Basin, West Region of Bahia, Northeastern Brazil. We add a brief biological note on ovoviviparity of Callibaetis radiatus Navas, 1920. A total of 350 specimens belonging to 13 species and 14 genera were collected and recorded for the first time, increasing from 41 to 54 the number of species in this…
