December 2009) suggested that these triangular structures may represent abdominal gills of an immature animal, and that the posterior orientation of the legs, the squat stance (with the head, thorax, and abdomen all touching the surface), the presumed abdominal gills, and the elongate shape of the trace are strongly suggestive of ephemeropterans
All predators relied heavily on ephemeropterans
In addition, seven species (one pseudoscorpion, one collembolan, one bivalve, one ephemeropteran
, and three trichopterans) are removed from the state list; a synthesis of new distributional records are added for two gastropods, one coleopteran, and one amphibian, and changes in nomenclature are provided for three gastropods and two coleopterans.
the amphipods Gmelinoides fasciatus (Stebbing) and Pontogammarus robustoides (Sars); the ephemeropterans
Kirikulaht, a lagoon closely connected with the bay of Reigi laht, revealed a diverse freshwater fauna dominated by chironomid and ephemeropteran
larvae, nematodes, and planktonic cladocerans.
The relative ease with which the range of tolerance values regarding the parameters investigated were obtained suggests that empirically derived tolerance ranges for most Ephemeropteran
species can be determined.
Sculpin from 15% embedded streams consumed ephemeropterans
Abundance of dipteran chironomid larvae, and ephemeropteran
tricorythid and baetid larvae in darter diets varied significantly among riffles (Table 1).
