CONTRIBUTION TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE CADDISFLY FAUNA OF MONTENEGRO – NEW DATA AND RECORDS FROM THE KARSTIC SPRINGS OF LAKE SKADAR BASIN

Abstract


Caddisfly larvae were collected in 11 karstic springs located in Lake Skadar drainage basin in the Mediterranean part of Montenegro on May and June 2018. Three species are new records for the caddisfly fauna of Montenegro: Brachycentrus subnubilus, Lepidostoma hirtum, Triaenodes ochreellus lefkas. One is a confirmed record of a previously thought absent species Thremma anomalum. Future caddisfly surveys in the region will contribute significantly to the partially known Trichoptera fauna of Montenegro.
