Abstract

New state records and additional locations for rarely collected species are reported for Ephemeroptera (mayflies), Plecoptera (stoneflies), Trichoptera (caddisflies), Coleoptera: Elmidae (riffle beetles), and Diptera: Chironomidae (chironomids, non-biting midges, midges). These specimen records result primarily from Ohio Environmental Protection Agency biomonitoring of Ohio streams and from records found in the Purdue University Entomological Research Collection and the Illinois Natural History Survey Insect Collection; a few records were derived from material housed in two other collections. New state records for Ohio consist of the mayflies Acentrella rallatoma Burian & Myers, Acerpenna pygmaea (Hagen), Anafroptilum album (McDunnough), Anafroptilum minor group species 1, Anafroptilum minor group species 2, Anafroptilum victoriae (McDunnough), Heterocloeon (Jubilatum) species B McCafferty et al., Heterocloeon (Jubilatum) species D McCafferty et al., Labiobaetis longipalpus (Morihara & McCafferty), Plauditus punctiventris (McDunnough), Ephemera guttulata Pictet, Habrophlebia vibrans Needham, and Anthopotamus verticis (Say); the stonefly Isoperla frisoni Illies; the caddisflies Brachycentrus nigrosoma (Banks), Homoplectra doringa (Milne), Ceraclea nepha (Ross), and Fabria inornata (Banks); the riffle beetle Oulimnius nitidulus (LeConte); and the chironomids Cricotopus (Isocladius) sp. “Ozarks” Epler, Cricotopus (Isocladius) sp. “Santa Fe” Epler, Fittkauimyia sp. [probably F. serta (Roback)], Parakiefferiella sp. F Epler, and Saetheria hirta Sæther. A previous report of the mayfly Macdunnoa persimplex (McDunnough) from the Ohio River, adjacent to Ohio, is substantiated with record data. The caddisfly Goerita betteni Ross is confirmed in Ohio. New state records for Indiana consist of the mayflies Heterocloeon (Jubilatum) species D McCafferty et al. and Leucrocuta walshi (McDunnough) and the chironomids Cricotopus (Isocladius) sp. “Ozarks” and Fittkauimyia sp. [probably F. serta (Roback)]. Recent Indiana records of the mayflies Homoeoneuria ammophila (Spieth) and Pentagenia vittigera (Walsh) are also included because these species are rarely collected and most existing records are old. These records represent significant range extensions north for Cricotopus (Isocladius) sp. “Santa Fe” Epler, Fittkauimyia sp. [probably F. serta (Roback)], Parakiefferiella sp. F Epler, and Saetheria hirta Sæther.
