The revision includes diagnoses of the family and its subfamilies. Keys to genera and species are provided. Descriptions of known species are supplemented or corrected. Several new synonymies are established and some new species are described. The majority of species in the Australian Region are illustrated, and detailed faunistical data are also presented. The following taxa are recognized: Eustheniidae Tillyard; Eustheniinae Tillyard (= Thaumatoperlinae Tillyard): Neuroperlopsis lilies (N… Expand
Systematic revision of the trans-Bassian moriomorphine genus Theprisa Moore (Coleoptera, Carabidae)
TLDR
Cladistic analysis based on morphological characters establishes monophyly of Theprisa relative to the Australian genera Sitaphe Moore and Spherita Liebherr and cladistically interdigitated among two monophyletic New Zealand lineages suggesting substantial trans-Tasman diversification among these groups. Expand
Character state‐based taxa erected to accommodate fossil and extant needle stoneflies (Leuctridae – Leuctrida tax.n.) and close relatives
TLDR
It is finally argued that the cladotypic nomenclatural procedure is optimal regarding name use and numbers, and allows adequate treatment of homoplasy. Expand
A revision of Stenoperla (Plecoptera: Eustheniidae) and removal of Australian species to Cosmioperla new genus
Abstract Stenoperla (Eustheniidae: Stenoperlinae), the only New Zealand genus in the family, is revised. A new diagnosis and keys to species are given and two new species are added bringing the totalExpand
CATALOGUE OF NEOTROPICAL PLECOPTERA
The Catalogue of Neotropical Plecoptera lists 508 valid names, of which 32 are dubious. The history of each name is given. The Neotropical Region comprises six families, of which two are endemic toExpand
OF THE PLECOPTERA
TLDR
The order as such is old, but phylogenetic relationships and global distribution patterns suggest that evolution of the extant suborders started with the breakup of Pangaea. Expand
The numbers of nymphal instars of several Australian Plecoptera
TLDR
The instar number of ten Australian stonefly (Plecoptera) species representing three families was found to range from 10–14 and the conformance with Dyar's (1890) rule of the individual species was determined and is discussed in terms of their life histories. Expand
Feeding and parasitism of adult Stenoperla spp. (Plecoptera: Eustheniidae) in New Zealand
TLDR
Gut content analysis of adult diets of two species of stoneflies in New Zealand provide further evidence for the importance of sooty mould fungi as a food source for New Zealand insects and highlight the role of Stenoperla as a vector of larval parasites from aquatic to terrestrial hosts. Expand
Evidence for Carboniferous origin of the order Mantodea (Insecta: Dictyoptera) gained from forewing morphology
TLDR
The homology statement implies that the total-group Mantodea arose as soon as the Late Carboniferous, i.e. about 175 million years earlier than previously estimated, suggesting a survivorship of several main Pterygota lineages at the end-Permian extinction event higher than previously expected. Expand
A Revision of South American Austroperlidae (Plecoptera)
TLDR
The South American Austroperlidae are revised and the male and nymph of K. armillata are described and figured for the first time and the female genitalia redescribed. Expand
The Genus Stenoperla McLachlan in Australia (Insecta: Plecoptera: Eustheniidae)
TLDR
A subdivision of Australian Stenoperla into two species-groups (australis group, kuna group) is proposed, and a key is presented for the identification of all known StenOperla in Australia (adults and larvae). Expand

Comments on the taxonomy of Australian Austroperlidae and Gripopterygidae (Plecoptera)
TLDR
The adults of two imperfectly known Austroperlidae are described, as is a new species of Austrohepture, A. illiesi, and it is concluded that Illiesoperla and Eunotoperla are probably monotypic. Expand
Tasmanian Antarctoperlaria (Plecoptera)
TLDR
It is concluded that the isolation of Tasmanian stoneflies has been a long one, and that land bridges to Wilson's Promontory have provided routes for only a few inhabitants of warm lowland streams. Expand
The life histories, trophic relations and production of Stenoperla prasina (Plecoptera) and Deleatidium sp. (Ephemeroptera) in a New Zealand river
TLDR
The life history, feeding relations and production of the stonefly Stenoperla prasina were studied for 16 months in the Selwyn River, South Island, New Zealand, finding larvae of all sizes were present in all months. Expand
The life histories of many of the stoneflies (Plecoptera) of south-eastern mainland Australia
TLDR
The life cycles in Australian species are generally much less rigid than those found in the northern hemisphere, and each species tends to occupy a broader ecological niche than do northern hemisphere ones and this possibly accounts for the relatively small number of species that are found in south-eastern Australia.

The Freshwater Insects

Reproductive system and mating of Hydroperla crosbyi: a newly discovered method of sperm transfer in Insecta
TLDR
This work has found that sperm transfer is external, to a depression around the female genital opening formed by a 'packing action" of the male epiproct during what appears superficially to be copulation, which represents a previously unreported means of sperm conveyance in the Plecoptera and among the insects. Expand
Abdominal gills in eustheniidae (Plecoptera)
TLDR
Scanning electron microscope studies of the abdominal gills of Eustheniopsis venosa, Stenoperla australis and Thaumatoperla alpina revealed sensory structures of morphological interest that are probably involved with chemoreception, mechanoreception or both. Expand
