Distributional records for 293 caddisfly species representing 22 families and 68 genera are reported from Kentucky along with information on taxonomy, flight period, habitat, and conservation status. Sixty-nine species represent new records for the Commonwealth. Kentucky's geographic regions are compared with respect to species richness. Distributions are summarized for all species; detailed occurrence data are provided for new records, species with limited distributions, and those representing substantial range extensions. A total of 69 species (24% of the fauna) are identified as imperiled or vulnerable within Kentucky.
