oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - A new synonym and distribution records of Afroptilum sudafricanum (Lestage) (Baetidae: Ephemeroptera) from the East African Highlands

Volume 55, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



Adult and nymphal material of Afroptilum sudafricanum (Lestage) from South Africa was compared with that of A. montanum (Kimmins) from East Africa. No consistent differences between the two could be demonstrated. A. montanum is therefore treated as a synonym of A. sudafricanum. Notes are given on the distribution of this species in highland areas of East Africa.
