          Abstract

          Os Ephemeroptera constituem um dos mais importantes grupos da entomofauna aquática, ao lado de Plecoptera e Trichoptera (EPT) e muitos Diptera. Ocorrem em ambientes aquáticos continentais lênticos e lóticos, sendo sua maior diversidade encontrada em rios de pequena ordem, com fundo rochoso e acúmulo de folhas, e água oligotrófica a mesotrófica. A última lista de Ephemeroptera para o Estado de São Paulo feita por Hubbard & Pescador (1999) registrou apenas 8 espécies e nenhum pesquisador trabalhando com taxonomia do grupo. Atualmente 53 espécies são registradas para o Estado de São Paulo, distribuídas em 9 famílias: Baetidae (15 spp.), Caenidae (1 sp.), Ephemeridae (1 sp.), Euthyplociidae (2 spp.), Leptohyphidae (12 spp.), Leptophlebiidae (16 spp.), Melanemerellidae (1 sp.), Oligoneuriidae (1 sp.) and Polymitarcyidae (3 spp.), e pelo menos 4 pesquisadores Doutores brasileiros trabalhando diretamente com taxonomia e distribuição de Ephemeroptera.

          Translated abstract

          Ephemeroptera is one of most important groups of aquatic insects besides of Plecoptera and Trichoptera, and various Diptera. They inhabit lotic and lentic environments with high diversity in streams and rivers, with stones and leaves and oligo-mesotrophic water. Last Ephemeroptera checklist for the State of São Paulo (Hubbard & Pescador, 1999) shows 8 species and no researchers working on Ephemeroptera taxonomy. Nowadays there are 53 species recorded for the State of São Paulo, distributed in 9 families: Baetidae (15 spp.), Caenidae (1 sp.), Ephemeridae (1 sp.), Euthyplociidae (2 spp.), Leptohyphidae (12 spp.), Leptophlebiidae (16 spp.), Melanemerellidae (1 sp.), Oligoneuriidae (1sp.) and Polymitarcyidae (3 spp.), and at least four PhD's Brazilian researchers working directly on taxonomy and distribution of Ephemeroptera.

            Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Trichoptera assemblages in litter in a mountain stream of the Atlantic Rainforest from Southeastern Brazil

            The study of Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Trichoptera associated with litter in southeastern Brazil streams aimed to answer the following questions: 1) Does richness and composition of EPT fauna differ between riffle and pool mesohabitats despite being associated to the same substratum, litter? 2) Does the similarity of the EPT fauna between both mesohabitats change with time? 3) Does the EPT functional feeding structure differ between both mesohabitats (riffles-pools)? In order to answer these questions, monthly collections, from November 1999 to June 2000, were done in Ribeirão (Stream) Bocaina with a D-net (10 litter patches in riffles and 10 in pools). The EPT fauna at Ribeirão Bocaina was more diversified and more abundant in the litter in riffles than in the litter in pools, although, when richness was standardized for the same number of individuals it became similar in both conditions. EPT fauna was very different between both mesohabitats in terms of faunal composition as well as in terms of function. Probably it was due to differences in water speed, in the time of litter residence and in the concentration of dissolved oxygen between both mesohabitats.
