The Natural History Museum, University of Oslo (NHM) houses a very large ethanol collection of Norwegian stoneflies. About half of this material is sorted and labelled; the other half consists of unsorted and largely unidentified samples. In addition, there are some 5000 high quality microscope slides of nymphal and adult body parts. Most samples were collected by the late Albert Lillehammer (1930-1992). In 2010 the collection built by Lillehammer has been digitized and georeferenced. 4305… Expand

Databasing the stoneflies (Plecoptera) at the Natural History Museum in Oslo reveals new Norwegian province records
In 2010 the metadata of the Plecoptera collection created by the late Albert Lillehammer at the Natural History Museum in Oslo (NHMO) were digitised and georeferenced. 4319 species records, mostly ofExpand
Faunistics of stoneflies (Plecoptera) in Finnmark, northern Norway, including DNA barcoding of Nemouridae
TLDR
Initial results from DNA barcoding of Norwegian stoneflies show that A. standfussi colonised the Scandinavian Peninsula from the south as well as the northeast, and comparison with North American barcode data reveals that A., palmeni and Nemoura sahlbergi Morton, 1896 have a Holarctic distribution.

Amphinemura palmeni is a valid Holarctic stonefly species (Plecoptera: Nemouridae)
The taxonomic status of Amphinemura palmeni, a rare stonefly from northern Fennoscandia, was re-evaluated in a morphological study combined with analyses of mitochondrial COI and nuclear 28SExpand

Notes on diversity and conservation of the European fauna of Plecoptera (Insecta)
TLDR
The whole Plecoptera fauna of lowland rivers in Europe can be considered threatened and the situation is particularly critical for several species, known from a small number of individuals and/or from restricted areas, and that of relict species. Expand
Zoogeographical studies on Fennoscandian stoneflies (Plecoptera)
TLDR
In Fennoscandia the highest number of different stonefly species have been recorded from areas north of the polar circle and in the continental parts of the boreal and subalpine vegetation belts, while in Norway the lowest number have beenrecorded from the coastal areas and on the islands. Expand
Insects of a small aestival stream in northern Sweden
TLDR
The insects of a small and cold aestival stream in northern Sweden were studied from semiquantitative kick-samples taken every ten days throughout the ice-free season in 1987 to predict the larval composition of this stream was representative for aestival streams in northernmost Fennoscandia. Expand
Rarity and commonness in three perlodid stoneflies.
TLDR
Patterns of site occupancy among boreal stream insects were studied in central Sweden with focus on sparsely distributed species and the role of dispersal and niche limitations, and the longitudinal distribution of filter-feeding caddisflies in a lake-outlet stream demonstrated patterns concordant to feeding specialization. Expand
Nymphs of the Fennoscandian Nemoura Latreille (Plecoptera: Nemouridae), with a key to species
TLDR
In Fennoscandia the highest number of Nemoura species (6) occurs in the north and the first instar nymphs of five of the species have also been examined, while in the south there are four and in the costal areas in the west only a single species. Expand
On the stonefly (Plecoptera) fauna of the transfrontier Selenga River basin
TLDR
Two new species of stonefly are recorded from the Russian part of the Selenga River basin for the first time; Filchneria mongolica Klapálek is new to the Russian fauna. Expand
Freeze tolerance in an arctic Alaska stonefly
TLDR
It is demonstrated that, in the face of freezing conditions, N. arctica exhibit overwintering adaptations similar to those of terrestrial insects. Expand
Key to the West Palaearctic genera of stoneflies (Plecoptera) in the larval stage
TLDR
An illustrated dichotomous key to larvae of all genera of Plecoptera in the West Palaearctic region is presented and brief comments on included species are added for each genus, plus diagnostic details of selected bioindicator species. Expand
Stream habitat fragmentation — a threat to biodiversity

TLDR
The case of Plecoptera suggests that potamal invertebrates suffered as severe losses as did fish, suggesting that rhithral biodiversity is thought to be much more endangered by human impact than is presently recognized. Expand
