Leuctra dalmoni Vinçon & Murányi 2007  

In the spring of 2008 we collected several larvae and adults of Leuctra dalmoni   , a species recently described from France and seven other European nations, including two sites in Slovakia ( Vinçon & Murányi 2007). Our first Slovakian records are from Suchý potok basin in the western High Tatra Mountains. We found dark brown to black adults with short, thin pilosity and larvae with long setae on the mid-abdominal tergites; long larval abdominal setae were at least ¾ of the segment length and often longer than the segments which were otherwise bare ( Fig. 1 View Fig ). Before the description of L. dalmoni   , the species was confused with L. pseudosignifera Aubert, 1954   and L. prima Kempny, 1899   ( Vinçon & Murányi 2007), but in comparison to larvae of these species, the larvae of L. dalmoni   have shorter pilosity on the cerci. Larval cercal setae on segments 3-10 do not reach the base of the next cercal segment in L. dalmoni   , whereas in larvae of L. prima   and L. pseudosignifera   these setae reach, or exceed, the length of the next segment. During the faunistic research in Slovakia over the years 2008-2010, we thought the center of occurrence for this species is in the High Tatra Mountains. Exceptionally, it was recorded from Slovak Paradise and Vepor’s Hills, and at present, it appears not only as an ordinary Tatra species, but also Slovak. In more recent data (yet unpublished) it is clear, that it commonly occurs in the upper Váh, Poprad and Dunajec, Ipel’, Hornád and Hnilec basins ( Fig. 2 View Fig ), but its distribution does not extend to the Pannonian ecoregion. Distribution of L. dalmoni   is closely related to the occurrence of mountain hypsometric degree. It is a rheophilic species which strongly dominates in epirithral zones and partially in springs, and it seems to prefer second and third order streams. The species occurs in streams with cristallic and carbonate geological basins.
