Observations on the seasonal dynamics of caddisfly larvae (Trichoptera) in an intermittent reservoir outflow at Ile-Ife, Nigeria

Observations on the seasonal dynamics of caddisfly larvae (Trichoptera) in an intermittent reservoir outflow at Ile-Ife, Nigeria

Journal of Aquatic Sciences 16(2): 139-143

Surber samples of hydropsychid Trichoptera larvae were collected in 2 seasons of water flow from a large reservoir spillway in Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Southwestern Nigeria. The Trichoptera fauna in the water body consisted of two genera, Cheumatopsyche and Amphipsyche, which closely associated with the moss, Fontinalis (Bryophyta). The density of larvae increased with the occurrence and bloom of moss.
