Nemoura fulviceps Klapálek, 1902 

Material examined. Rif: Tetouan, Martil v.: Sidi Brahim Ben Arrif spr., Bab Hachef-Aissa, 27.04.2013, 500 m, 1 male, 1 female (ERR).

Distribution ( Fig. 8View FIGURE 8). A West Mediterranean species occurring in the Iberian Peninsula and Sicily. In the Maghreb, it was listed from the Djurdjura Massif in central Algeria ( Lounaci & Vinçon 2005) and recently discovered in the Moroccan Rif by Errochdi et al. (2014). This species, very common in the Iberian Peninsula, could have originated in Spain, and then dispersed southwards into Morocco, eastwards in Algeria and finally northwards to Sicily.

Ecology. Larvae occur in various mountain brooks and springs between 160 and 1600 m in the Iberian Peninsula (Tierno de Figueroa et al. 2003). In the Rif, the larvae are detritivores and only occur in high altitude biotopes between 1600 and 1800 m. The adult flight period is in spring (IV).
