status

 

Epeorus (Iron) martinus Braasch & Soldan, 1984 

Iron martinus  Braasch & Soldán, 1984: 113-114, Figs 35-44. (orig.)

Epeorus (Iron) martinus  Braasch & Soldán, 1984 (comb.)

Larva.

Braasch and Soldán 1984c: 113-114, Figs 35-44; Nguyen and Bae 2004a: 102-104, Figs 1-6.

Adult.

Unknown.

Eggs.

Unknown.

Distribution.

Khun Kon Waterfall (Chiang Rai province).

Diagnosis.

The larva of Epeorus martinus  can be distinguished by the following characteristics: pairs of moderately long acute submedian spines on the abdominal terga 1-9, large but narrow gill 1 forming a sucking disc and gill 7 being unfolded.

Habitat and biology.

Epeorus martinus  larvae are found in mountain streams with a moderate current, at an elevation of 300-2800 m ( Nguyen and Bae 2004a).

Remarks.

Webb and McCafferty (2008) did not recognize the subgenera of Epeorus  (e.g. Belovius  , Iron  ). However, we hold on the validity of subgenus Belovius  and Iron  within genus Epeorus  (Boonsoong & Braasch, 2010). Therefore, we propose Iron martinus  Braasch & Soldán, 1984 = Epeorus (Iron) martinus  Braasch & Soldán, 1984
