Notes

The pupae of Simulium equinum   can be identified by the banana-like gill branches. Although S. equinum   is found from central and northern Europe to northeastern Asia, it becomes progressively less common throughout the Mediterranean borderlands and islands ( Crosskey and Zwick 2007). This species was reported from the Sakarya river system as a new record for Turkey ( Sirin and Sahin 2005). Crosskey and Zwick (2007) also found it at a river near Kızılcahamam, Ankara. These authors note that S. equinum   typically occurs with other species of the subgenus Wilhelmia   . We record this species at nine sites, of which six were with S. pseudequinum   and one with S. balcanicum   .
