  • ISSN : 0013-8789



Eatonica crassi spec. nov. and Ephemera mooiana spec. nov. are descriptionbed and figured; their relationshiips to other ephemerids are discussed. During the course of a study to determine the phylogenetic relationships between genera of Ephemeridae, a number of specimens representative of the Ethiopian fauna were examined. Among the material borrowed, a new species of Ephemera from Natal was discovered, and several specimens from Africa in the collection of the University of Utah proved to be a new species of Eatonica. The two new species are descriptionbed here and their relationships to other ephemerids are discussed.
