oa African Entomology - Revision of Desmonemoura Tillyard, Aphanicerca Tillyard, Alronemoura lilies and Aphanicercopsis Barnard (Plecoptera: Notonemouridae), with a key to males



The genera Desmonemoura Tillyard, Aphanicerca Tillyard, Afronemoura lilies, Aphanicercopsis Barnard and Balinskycercella Stevens & Picker are revised, and a key to males of all 20 species of these genera is provided. Desmonemoura brevis sp. n., Aphanicerca gnua sp. n., Aphanicerca chanae sp. n. and Afronemoura stuckenbergi sp. n. are descriptionbed, increasing the total number of known southern African notonemourid stoneflies from 27 to 31. The female of A. bovina Barnard is descriptionbed for the first time. Some species, including the new species of Aphanicerca and Afronemoura are localized, and protection of the catchments in which they occur is essential for their survival.
