The Mayflies (Ephemeroptera) of New Hampshire: Seasonality and Diversity of the Stream Fauna
Season-long sampling in streams and rivers produced 112 species of mayflies, which with other records totals 121 species for New Hampshire; 88 of these are new state records. Appearance of blackwing/mature larvae were used to develop statements on seasonality of species. Distinct differences were found between the faunas of southern and north-central New Hampshire, with an important factor being water temperatures through the season. A biogeographic analysis coupled with known habitat preferences reinforced the hypothesis that water temperature was a critical factor in determining species distributions in the state.
