          Abstract

          Con el objetivo de contribuir al conocimiento taxonómico y de distribución de los géneros del orden Ephemeroptera en Caldas, se estudiaron especímenes colectados entre mayo de 2008 y mayo de 2012 en 12 municipios del departamento de Caldas - Colombia, abarcando un rango altitudinal de 159 a 3433 m y un total de 55 fuentes hídricas. Se encontraron seis familias y 26 géneros de Ephemeroptera, de los cuáles Cabecar constituye un nuevo registro para Colombia, y también se realiza el primer registro de las ninfas de Tikuna y Ulmeritoides para el país. Americabaetis, Apobaetis, Callibaetis, Cloeodes, Guajirolus, Paracloeodes, Cabecar, Traveryphes, Tricorythodes, Terpides, Tikuna, Ulmeritoides, Caenis y Campsurus son nuevos registros para Caldas. Se encontraron diferencias en la composición de la fauna de Ephemeroptera en las diversas zonas altitudinales, siendo las zonas de altitud inferior a 1000 m las de mayor riqueza de géneros.

          With the aim of contribute to the knowledge of taxonomy and distribution of the genera of the order Ephemeroptera in Caldas, samples were taken between May of 2008 and May of 2012 in 12 municipalities of the department of Caldas - Colombia, covering an altitudinal range from 159 to 3433 m and a total of 55 water sources. Six families and 26 genera of Ephemeroptera were found, of which Cabecar is a new record for Colombia, also recording for the first time the nymphs of Tikuna and Ulmeritoides for the country. Americabaetis, Apobaetis, Callibaetis, Cloeodes, Guajirolus, Paracloeodes, Cabecar, Traveryphes, Tricorythodes, Terpides, Tikuna, Ulmeritoides, Caenis and Campsurus are new records for Caldas.
