Frederico F. Salles Elidiomar R. Da-Silva José E. Serrão Cesar N. Francischetti About the authors

In order to complement and integrate the knowledge regarding the fauna of Baetidae from Southeastern Brazil, thirteen species and nine genera of this family are recorded. Out of the twenty small minnow mayflies genera reported from Brazil, only five were not found for the region. A checklist of the species reported, including their distribution and pertinent bibliography, is presented. A pictorical key to nymphs is proposed for the identification of the genera in Southeastern Brazil.
