Abstract

South American species of small minnow mayflies (Insecta : Ephemeroptera : Baetidae) that have been previously placed in Baetis Leach or Pseudocloeon Klapálek are revised. Species that resided in Baetis are shown to include Camelobaetidius alcyoneus, n. comb., C. coveloae, n. comb., C. dryops, n. comb., C. tantillus, n. comb., Cloeodes nocturnus, n. comb., C. stelzneri, n. comb., Fallceon inops, n. comb., F. murphyae, n. comb., F. yaro, n. comb., Moribaetis aneto, n. comb., M. comes, n. comb., and M. socius, n. comb. Species that resided in Pseudocloeon are shown to include Americabaetis albinervis, n. comb., A. bridarolli, n. comb., A. bruchi, n. comb., A. jorgenseni, n. comb., A. oldendorffi, n. comb., A. peterseni, n. comb., A. weiseri, n. comb., Cloeodes turbinops, n. comb., and C. venezuelensis, n. comb. The bases of the revisions are discussed under each species. The presence of Fallceon and Moribaetis in South America is confirmed for the first time.
