Taxonomic and distributional notes on the dobsonflies of Ecuador (Megaloptera: Corydalidae)



Taxonomic and distributional notes on the dobsonflies of Ecuador (Megaloptera: Corydalidae)



Dugesiana. Julio; 111: 1-11



A general account of the taxonomy and distribution of the dobsonflies of Ecuador is given, with notes on recently studied material from the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Ecuador. Twelve species are reported from the country and their respective distributions are summarized. Three additional, but undescribed species are apparent in recently examined museum collections. A second male of Corydalus ecuadorianus Banks is reported, and photographs of the male and the female holotype are included. The location of syntypes of Chloronia mirifica Navas, previously thought destroyed, is established at the Museu de Zoologia, Barcelona, Spain. A lectotype for the latter species is designated.
