Trichoptera (Caddisflies) of Michigan

Introduction

Our current state of knowledge regarding the distribution of Trichoptera in Michigan is improving thorough recent sampling efforts that yield new state records and even new species. Many species still do not have their larval or pupal stages associated with adults, making species-level identifications of immatures difficult or simply not possible.

This list largely is based on Leonard and Leonard (1949) as well as many subsequent collection and rearing efforts by Justin Leonard principally during the early 1950s, which are now housed at the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, Insect Division. Additional resources include Bright and Bidlack (1998), specimens collected by Doug Bidlack and Ethan Bright (unpublished), specimens light-trapped from the E. S. George Reserve and identified by Dave Ruiter, and a new faunal survery of Michigan Trichoptera under the direction of Dr. David Houghton at Hillsdale College. Based on these efforts and additional literature citations, there are currently about 76 genera and 254 species recorded from Michigan, with another 5 genera and approximately 72 species likely to occur in Michigan based on distributions from nearby localities. Species denoted in bold blue have been recorded in Michigan; other species denoted in bold are likely to occur based on their known distribution. 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. Synonym and literature material information is primarily from the Trichoptera Database Project, a great resource under the directorship of Dr. John Morse at the University of Clemson.
