The information available on the Chilean representatives of the superfamily Siphlonuroidea (sensu Kluge et al., 1995) is outdated, inaccurate and incomplete. A taxonomic revision of the siphlonuroid genus Metamonius is presented here. New material is compared with descriptions in the literature of the three species of this genus in order to determine the variability of the more relevant characters; discrepancies with the authors of the species are discussed; the synonymy of M. anceps and M…

Estado de conocimiento del orden Ephemeroptera en la Patagonia
From the field work carried in 80 collecting sites during the development of the Nahuel Huapi Nacional Park, some species are recorded for the first time in Argentina, out of which 33 species belonging to 20 genera are known to occur in Argentina.
Ephemeroptera and Plecoptera biodiversity in central Patagonia, Chubut province, Argentina
The first preliminary inventory of Plecoptera and Ephemeroptera taxa for the area is presented and include seasonal records of adult stages and reinforces the idea that patagonian aquatic environments have a highly specialized and complex insect fauna which can be correlated with biogeographical aspects but also with a great environmental heterogeneity.
Distribution of accessory gills in mayfl y larvae (Insecta: Ephemeroptera: Siphlonuroidea, Eusetisura)
The present study compares the different structures of those accessory gills that occur in some taxa of Siphlonuroidea and Eusetisura, and discusses the homology of these outgrowths.
Habitat preference and life history of the mayflies Metamonius anceps Eaton (Nesameletidae) and Meridialaris chiloeensis Demoulin (Leptophlebiidae) in a Patagonian mountain stream
The habitat preferences, temporal dynamics in density and the life history of two species of mayflies, Metamonius anceps and Meridialaris chiloeensis, were investigated in a Patagonian mountain stream over a period of one year and the existence of different life history strategies were critical to allow species coexistence.

Altered mayfly distribution due to strong interactions with alien rainbow trout in Andean streams of Patagonia
The potential of natural physical barriers to stop invasive fish having access to headwaters allowing them to harbour natural populations of the most trout-susceptible species supporting pristine ecosystem conditions is emphasized.
