Stoneflies (Plecoptera: Perlidae) of Nicaragua

  title={Stoneflies (Plecoptera: Perlidae) of Nicaragua},
  author={Stefano Fenoglio},
Abstract Neotropical Plecoptera represent an interesting subject of study, for their phylogenetic, biogeographical and ecological importance. The Plecopterofauna of a large portion of the Neotropics is represented by only one genus of Perlidae, Anacroneuria Klapálek. This work provides information about the stonefly fauna of Nicaragua, a country for which few previous investigations have been undertaken for this insect group. Eight species of Anacroneuria are currently recorded, including A… 
Anacroneuria azul Rojas & Baena and A. marca Stark are reported from Panama for the first time, and the presence of A. lineata (Navas) in Panama, is confirmed.
First records of Plecoptera from Pantepui biogegraphical province, with the first record of genus Kempnyia Klapálek, 1914 for Venezuela (Insecta: Plecoptera)
Stoneflies are recorded for the first time in Pantepui biogegraphical province at Churi tepui plateau. Two stonefly genera were recorded: Macrogynoplax and Kempnyia. Kempyia is reported for the first
The Plecoptera of Panama. I. The stonefly fauna of Mount Totumas Cloud Forest and Biological Reserve, including a new country record.
Five species of this genus of stoneflies are recorded from the Mount Totumas Cloud Forest and Biological Reserve, in the upper reaches of the Rio Chiriqui Viejo watershed, part of an ongoing effort to characterize the aquatic insect fauna of Panama, and to evaluate that country’s major watersheds.
Perlidae (Plecoptera) from the Paranapiacaba Mountains, Atlantic Forest, Brazil: Diversity and implications of the integrative approach and teneral specimens on taxonomy
The results suggest that the development of an integrative taxonomy is essential to continue advancing the study of Perlidae diversity in South America and indicate that the color of adult teneral specimens differs from that of mature specimens.
Biochemical and molecular differentiation of Anacroneuria species (Plecoptera, Insecta) in Andean National Park, Venezuela
Examining four stoneflies species differentiation using a combination of genetic signals involving mitochondrial genetic markers and biochemical signals involving cuticular hydrocarbons revealed strong interactions among Anacroneuria species and potential recent speciation events refuting species hypothesis from three out of four species.
The structure and ultrastructure of the egg capsule of Brachyptera risi (Plecoptera, Nemouroidea, Taeniopterygidae) with some remarks concerning choriogenesis
The organization of the egg capsule of the euholognathan stonefly, which represents the family Taeniopterygidae (Nemuroidea) was investigated using light and electron microscopy techniques. The
Monitoring of Neotropical Streams Using Macroinvertebrate Communities: Evidence from Honduras
Assessing the water quality by using biological indicators is a reliable and economically feasible way to promote environmental conservation in developing tropical countries. Here, we report one of


Stoneflies of the Genus Anacroneuria from Mexico and Central America (Plecoptera)
The purpose of this paper is to define the 19 species of Anacroneuria which I recognize in material from Mexico and Central America.
A characterization of the egg capsules of Anacroneuria starki and A. talamanca (Plecoptera: Perlidae), with a suggestion about the distribution of stoneflies in the Tropics.
The structure of egg capsules of two species of Neotropical Perlidae, Anacroneuria starki Fenoglio and Morisi and A. talamanca Stark, were examined and a key role for egg capsules in the adaptation process of Plecoptera to aquatic environments of the Neotropics is hypothesized.
Phylogenetic system and zoogeography of the Plecoptera.

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.
Nymphs of North American stonefly genera (Plecoptera).
The basal branching point in north american stonefly nymphs are aquatic insects of the peltoperlidae styloperl Families and are sometimes very susceptible to the pteronarcyoidea.
Anacroneuria from Mexico and upper Mesoamerica (Plecoptera: Perlidae)
The status of 39 Anacroneuria species reported for Mexico, the adjacent areas of Mesoamerica, and the United States are reviewed, and nymphs of 2 species, A. baumanni and A. quadriloba, are described.
Anacroneuria of Trinidad and Tobago (Plecoptera: Perlidae)
Two species of Anacroneuria occur on the islands of Trinidad and Tobago, and both A. isleta and A. aroucana appear to have sister species on the South American mainland.
Anacroneuria starki, a New Species from Nicaragua (Plecoptera: Perlidae)
Anacroneuria starki Fenoglio and Morisi sp. n. from Zelaya, Nicaragua, is described for adult male and female. The description is supported by original drawings and relationships with closely related
