MARINONI, Luciane  and  ALMEIDA, Gisele Luziane de. Abundance and seasonality of Hydropsychidae species (Insccta, Trichoptera) collected with light trap at Paraná State, Brazil. Rev. Bras. Zool. [online]. 2000, vol.17, n.1, pp.283-299. ISSN 0101-8175.

During one year of the project called "Survey of the Entomological Fauna in Paraná State" (henceforth PROFAUPAR), 126,340 adult specimens of Trichoptera were collected with light trap. The individuais of the family Hydropsychidae were identified and a list of species is presented. Eighteen species in four genera were identified. From this, S. (R.) discalis Flint, 1972,5. (R.) paramnsis Flint, 1983;S (R.) spinulosa Flint, 1972 are for the first time registered for Brazil and Leptonema sparsum (Ulmer, 1905), Macrostemum hyalinum (Pictet, 1836), S. (Smicridea) albosignata Ulmer, 1907; S. (Rhyacophylax) dentifera Flint, 1983; S. (R.) iguazu Flint, 1983; S. (R.) piraya Flint, 1983; S. (R.) unguiculaia Flint, 1983; S. (R.) vermiculata Flint, 1978 and S. (R.) weidneri Flint, 1972, for Paraná State. Discussion about the individuais abundance and species seasonality is presented.
