status

 

Leuctra tenella (Provancher, 1878) 

was originally described from the vicinity of Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. Ricker (1952) subsequently designated a lectotype from Old Forge, New York. Leuctra tenella  is the sister species of L. carolinensis ( Grubbs 2015)  and generally exhibits a more northeastern distribution. However, this species has been reported from Virginia ( Kondratieff & Kirchner 1987), Great Smoky Mountain National Park in North Carolina ( Parker et al. 2007) and nearby locations in Haywood and Macon counties ( Grubbs 2015). This species was collected from a 3 rd order stream in the Blue Ridge Physiographic Province of northern Georgia.
