The aim of this study was to gather quantitative field and laboratory data on the role of Lepidostoma cascadense (Milne) and Lepidostoma unicolor (Banks) in the processing of conifer needles in a stream ecosystem. Samples were collected monthly in a riffle-pool section of Mack Creek, Lane County, Oregon, USA. For L. cascadense, maximum larval density was 812/M2 and instantaneous growth rate was 1.5%/d. The larvae grew slowly throughout the winter and pupation occurred in May and June. In… Expand
