Three new species of the Nearctic Perlidae genus Perlesta are described from North Carolina and Virginia, USA. Perlesta leathermani sp. n. is described from Hoke/Moore County, North Carolina, P. bjostadi, sp. n. from the Harnett/Cumberland Co., North Carolina, and P. cranshawi sp. n. is described from Sussex Co., Virginia. The adult male, adult female, and egg are described and illustrated for P. leathermani and P. cranshawi, and the adult male and adult female for P. bjostadi. Three new state…

A new species of Perlesta (Plecoptera: Perlidae) from North Carolina with additional records for North Carolina and Virginia
The male of Perlesta beatyi n. sp. is described from Robeson County, North Carolina, U.S.A. and is distinguished by truncate paraproct apices with a small obscure tooth. New species records for
A new stonefly species (Plecoptera, Perlidae) from the Interior Highlands USA, with morphological and molecular comparison to other congeneric species
TLDR
A preliminary molecular phylogenetic hypothesis is proposed for Perlesta based on 17 congeners and three outgroup taxa using partial mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I sequence data and illustrations, stereomicroscope images, and scanning electron micrographs support the description and comparison to other Perlesta.
DISTRIBUTION OF NEOPERLA (PLECOPTERA: PERLIDAE) IN NORTH CAROLINA, WITH NEW STATE RECORDS FOR THREE SPECIES
Three new state records of Neoperla were collected as adults, N. catharae, N. coosa, and N. stewarti. Mapping of nymphal data (at the genus level) indicated that Neoperla occurs throughout most of
Perlesta armitagei n. sp. (Plecoptera: Perlidae): More cryptic diversity in darkly pigmented Perlesta from the eastern Nearctic.
TLDR
Some cryptic diversity within a small group of Perlesta with dark wings and bodies is reported on, including one species known currently within the Ohio River drainage from Indiana eastward to western Pennsylvania and southward into central Kentucky.
A NEW SPECIES OF PERLESTA (PLECOPTERA: PERLIDAE) FROM NEW YORK
A new species, Perlesta mihucorum described from New York, USA, is distinguished from other regional species in the male by the characteristics of the paraprocts and aedeagus and in the female by the
Stenelmis hollandi White and Lenat (Coleoptera: Elmidae), a New Species of Riffle Beetle from the Little River, North Carolina, USA
TLDR
A new species of riffle beetle is described from the Little River drainage of North Carolina, within the Cape Fear River basin, that may be separated from similar species by the male genitalia, small size, and distinct single testaceous vitta on each elytron.
TAXONOMIC AND DISTRIBUTIONAL NOTES ON PERLESTA TEAYSIA, P. GOLCONDA, AND P. SHAWNEE (PLECOPTERA: PERLIDAE)
TLDR
Perlesta napacola DeWalt is shown to be a junior synonym of P. teaysia Kirchner & Kondratieff and a significant range extension is presented and discussed for P. shawnee Grubbs.
Perlesta ouabache, a new species of stonefly (Plecoptera: Perlidae) from Indiana, USA
Perlesta ouabache sp. n. is described from Indiana, USA. Perlesta ouabache is distinguished from Nearctic congeners by characteristics of the male paraprocts and eggs.

TLDR
Two new species of stoneflies are described from Hay wood Co., Macon Co., and Hoke/Moore Co., North Carolina, USA, respectively, and diagnostic characters are given to separate these two species from the three other known eastern North American species of Haploperla.
