status

 

Isoperla montana (Banks)   .

This species exhibits mainly a central and northern Appalachian   GoogleMaps distribution ( DeWalt et al. 2010). Males   GoogleMaps have one spur at the base of the aedeagus, compared to two on I. namata Frison. Nymphs   of the two species are currently indistinguishable. We   GoogleMaps present specimen data from an Indiana ravine stream. The   GoogleMaps senior author tentatively identified them as I. namata   , but they were later identified as I. montana   by B.C. Kondratieff. This constitutes a new state record for Indiana and large range extension into the Midwest. The presence of this species calls into question the identification of nymphs in the region as I. namata   . Further   GoogleMaps investigations are ongoing.
