oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - On Some Stoneflies (Plecoptera) from the eastern parts of South Africa

Volume 19, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



The present communication is primarily based on a small collection of stone flies made by myself in the Mount aux Sources area (Natal). In addition I have examined stoneflies collected by Dr. E. McC. Callan of the Rhodes University, and by students of the same University in the Grahamstown area, and also stoneflies collected by J. B. Balinsky in the Northern Transvaal (river Metlapetsi, near Haenertsburg). In this paper I am going to deal only with the stoneflies of the family Leuctridae (Nemouridae?), as the South African representatives of the subfamily Neoperlinae have been dealt with exhaustively by H. B. N. Hynes (1952a, 1952b) and I do not have much to add to the information given.
