Ephemeroptera (Mayflies) of Michigan

Key to the Ephemeroptera of Michigan

Introduction

Although well surveyed in certain locations (especially by J. W. and F. A. Leonard), much work remains to adequately inventory our Michigan mayfly fauna, especially in the Upper Peninsula. The publication by Randolph and McCafferty (1998) is a useful step forward in documenting the general distribution of mayfly species in the Great Lakes. This work, in addition to records from Leonard's collections housed at the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, Insect Division, forms the basis for this list. There are Michigan records for at least 126 species in 42 genera, with perhaps 41 additional species that have documented records nearby.

Many other records exist as synonymies; these are included under the current valid name, based on information located at the Mayfly Central web site. Genera are denoted in green; species denoted in bold blue have been recorded in Michigan; species denoted in black bold are likely to occur in Michigan based on their known distribution with nearby state/provincial localities from which certified records have been published. You can use the Find function in your web browser to locate families, genera, and species. Synonomous species (indented) are listed below the current valid species (denoted in bold) with its taxonomic status indicated.

    • Corrected authorship error for Cercobrachys fox, C. lilliei, and C. winnegago. Thanks to Luke Jacobus for noticing this error.
    June 24, 2014
    • Centroptilum does not occur in North America, but our species have been reassigned to Anafroptilum and Neocloeon (alamance and triangulifer), per Jacobus & Wiersema 2014.
    April 16, 2014
    • Ametropus neavei a junior synonym of Ametropus fragilis per Jacobus 2014.
    January 06, 2013
    • Removed Maccaffertium ithaca as a Michigan record (based on Leonard and Leonard 1962: 108) per Bednarik and McCafferty (1979: 23), who indicate Michigan and Minnesota records are likely misidentifications, as this species is essentially Appalachian in distribution.
    December 27, 2012
    • Removed Raptoheptagenia cruentata as a possible Michigan species; its range in IL, IN and OH apparently is restricted to Mississippi-draining systems; a widespread species (also known from AB and SK), it probably doesn't occur in Michigan
    • Pseudocloeon dardanum, P. ephippitum, P. frondalis, and P. propinquum moved back to Labiobaetis
    • Removed Callibaetis ferrugineus hageni, as its distribution is western North America
    November 21, 2012
    • Revised html coding, reducing file size
    November 01, 2012
    • Beginning to keep track of changes to the web site pages
    • Removed individual pages for families into one long list, families accessed from left menu via anchor redirects within page
    • Updated synonomies, based on Mayfly Central and other publications
    • Pentagenia vittigera (Walsh, 1862) moved from Ephemeridae to Palingeniidae (see McCafferty and Edmunds 1976)
    • Added Cloeon dipterum (as Cloeon cognatum) as new Michigan record; specimen collected by K.Perez, S.McCubbin, J.Cossey, A.Borisenko - Oceana Co. (43.4851N, -86.3603); data from supplementary spreadsheet from publisher of Webb et al. 2012).
