Kintrishi State Nature Reserve — a hotspot for mayfly (Insecta: Ephemeroptera) diversity in Adjara (Georgia)

ALEXANDER V. MARTYNOV, ROMAN J. GODUNKO, DMITRY M. PALATOV

Abstract


The mayfly fauna of Kintrishi State Nature Reserve and its vicinities were investigated. For the present moment the mayfly species-list for the reserve and its vicinities comprises 34 species. This territory is the type locality of three described species and a further five undescribed species. Species elevational distribution and ecological preferences within the territory are briefly discussed. The role of the investigated territory for the mayflies' conservation is highlighted.


Keywords
