Redescription of Triplectides misakianus (Matsumura 1931) (Trichoptera, Leptoceridae) in Japan with notes on its habitat

NOBUYUKI KATSUMA, RYOICHI B. KURANISHI

Abstract


Triplectides misakianus (Matsumura 1931) is redescribed on the basis of adults, larvae, and pupae collected in Japan. This report describes the pupal morphology of this species for the first time. A 658-bp fragment of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene as a potential “DNA barcode” is provided. The habitat and conservation of the species are discussed.
