  • As of 8/8/2013 Mike Maehr has been added as a coauthor of Plecoptera Species File. Mike has been responsible for adding new taxa, references, and distribution information over the past three years. It is time to recognize his commitment. Please note that this changes how PSF should be cited.

    Life Science Identifiers (LSIDs) are now available for stonefly taxa. A faunal search is available using TDWG hierarchies 1-3.

    Some data presented herein are based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant DEB 09–18805 ARRA.

    Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.

The Plecoptera Species File website includes valid names, their synonyms, bibliographic data, specimen data, images, sounds, and distributions for stoneflies of the world.

A key to all 16 families is provided, but currently is not illustrated. Experts are encouraged to assume an active role in the maintenance of this resource: alert us to errors or inconsistencies in the database, adopt the management of groups you are revising or have revised, provide pdfs of recently published works, and send attributed images for posting on the website.

To see information contained in the database, use the links across the top of the page.  Click on Search to find a specific taxon or other kinds of information.  Clicking on Taxa will make the order Plecoptera your current taxon unless you have previously moved to a different taxon in this session.

This website and database use Species File Software.  Information about the design and use of SFS may be found on a separate website.
