Abstract

The larva and female adult of Paraleptophlebia calcarica are described for the first time, based on reared and additional material from Kansas. These new records represent the first report of P. calcarica since its original description from Arkansas. Paraleptophlebia calcarica larvae may be distinguished from congeners by characters associated with the mouthparts, abdominal gills, and caudal filaments. Larvae of P. calcarica inhabit intermittent streams. New Kansas records are noted for P. ontario and Leptophlebia intermedia, which may cohabit with P. calcarica.
