genus embracing seven species. Subsequently, the number of accepted Nearctic species has fluctuated between four and nine with descriptions of new species, generic transfers and synonymies. Most of these systematic changes are summarized by Frison (1942), Ricker (1954), Nebeker and Gaufin (1966), Nelson (1977) and Harper and Wildman (1984). Kawai (1967) recognized the presence of Paraleuctra in Japan and other species are now known from the Russian Far East (Zhiltzova 1974), Thailand (Harper…

A review of the Nearctic genus Zealeuctra Ricker (Plecoptera, Leuctridae), with the description of a new species from the Cumberland Plateau region of eastern North America
Scanning electron microscopy was used to examine and redescribe two important diagnostic features typically used to identify and define the adult male stage: the large, anteriorly-recurved epiproct and the medial cleft of the ninth abdominal tergite.
Plecoptera collected with Malaise traps in South Korea were studied, comprising 25 identified species, including seven new species, and six new records for Korea, where the total number of Plecoptera species known from Korea now equals 57.
The Mayflies (Ephemeroptera), Stoneflies (Plecoptera), and Caddisflies (Trichoptera) of the Adirondack Park (New York State)
This work reports 509 species of EPT from the Adirondack Park of which 99 are reported from New York State for the first time, which is the first ever comprehensive assessment of aquatic insects in the region.
The winter stonefly genus Paracapnia (Plecoptera: Capniidae)
The capniid genus Paracapnia Hanson is reviewed and a new species, P. boris, is described from males and females collected in northern California, provisionally assigned to the genus.
Character state‐based taxa erected to accommodate fossil and extant needle stoneflies (Leuctridae – Leuctrida tax.n.) and close relatives
It is finally argued that the cladotypic nomenclatural procedure is optimal regarding name use and numbers, and allows adequate treatment of homoplasy.
Paraleuctra cervicornis (Plecoptera: Leuctridae), a new stonefly from China
A new species, Paraleuctra cervicornis Du and Qian, from Sichuan, China is described and a key to males of four Chinese Paraleuctra is presented. Types of the new species are deposited in the Insect
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,
Studies on the stoneflies of Georgia with the description of a new species of Soyedina Ricker, new state records and an annotated checklist.
A new species of Soyedina Ricker is described, in addition to the listing of 24 new state records and the inclusion of an annotated checklist of species presently known from Georgia.
Effects of stream permanence on stonefly (Insecta, Plecoptera) community structure at Mammoth Cave National Park, Kentucky, USA
The influence of stream permanence on stonefly assemblage composition and spatial distribution at Mammoth Cave National Park, Kentucky, USA, was addressed, based on a 14 month sampling regime from the fullest range of stream sizes and habitable flow regions available.


New Records and Descriptions of Plecoptera (Class Insecta)
Additional descriptions, new synonymy, or new records are given concerning Capnia coloradensis Claassen, Isocapnia vedderensis (Ricker), Leuctra sibleyi Claassens, Isoperla nana (Walsh), Paraperla frontalis (Banks), and six species of the Ostrocerca subgenus of Nemoura.
Capniidae, Leuctridae, and Perlidae (Plecoptera) from Nepal
Abstract Eleven species of the families Capniidae. Leuctridae. and Perlidae (Plecoptera) are recognized in a collection of stoneflies from Nepal. Five new species are described: Capnia nepalensis,
Calileuctra, a new genus, and two new species of stoneflies from California (Plecoptera: Leuctridae)
A phylogenetic analysis of the genera in the family Leuctridae is given, which places Calileuctra near the genus of Perlomyia .
A new Paraleuctra (Plecoptera; Leuctridae) from the Cascade and Coast ranges
Paraleuctra andersoni n. sp. is described from the Western Cascades of Oregon and the Coast Range of California. It is related to Paraleuctra purcellana (Neave) from the Rocky Mountains. The two
