ALMEIDA, Gisele Luziane de  and  MARINONI, Luciane. Abundance and seasonality of Leptoceridae species (Insecta, Trichoptera) captured with light trap at Paraná State, Brazil. Rev. Bras. Zool. [online]. 2000, vol.17, n.2, pp.347-359. ISSN 0101-8175.

From 126,340 adult specimens of Trichoptera captured with light trap during one year of the project called "Survey of the Entomological Fauna in Paraná State" (Paraná, Brazil), 6,375 belong to the family Leptoceridae. The individuals of the family were identified and a list of species is presented. The following species are recorded for the first time to Paraná State: Achoropsyche duodecimpunctata (Navas. 1916); Nectopsyche aureovittala Flint, 1983; Nectopsyche fuscomaculata Flint, 1983; Nectopsyche muhni (Navas, 1916); Nectopsyche separata (Banks, 1920); Nectopsyche ortizi Holzenthal, 1995; Nectopsyche splendida (Navas, 1917) and Tripleclides gracilis (Burmeister, 1839). Discussion on individual abundance and species seasonality are also presented.

Keywords : Trichoptera; Leptoceridae; abundance; seasonality; species richness; light trap; Paraná; Brazil.
