Leuctra rickeri James, 1976:882   . Holotype ♂ (INHS), 1.5 mi E Frenchburg, Hwy 460, Menifee Co., Kentucky Material examined. Illinois: Pope Co. , Burden Creek , FR 402, Burden Falls , 18 May 2006, B. Stark, I. Sivec, 34♂, 42♀ (BPS). Kentucky: Rowan Co. , Logan Branch , Logan Hollow , 23 May 1999, B. Stark, R. F. Kirchner, 4♂, 10♀ (BPS). Mississippi: Webster Co. , The Cove , 7 mi W Walthall, T 20 N, R 8 E, Sec. 12, Malaise trap, 22-28 April 1988, T. L. Schiefer, 1♂ (MEM).

Comments. Although the holotype is from Kentucky, most of the paratype series of this species are from sites in the Shawnee National Forest near the Burden Creek location of our specimens. The Logan Branch , Kentucky site is in a county adjacent to Menifee Co., where the holotype was collected. As discussed above for L. alabama   , the holotype and topotype specimens need to be carefully studied to evaluate the status of this species. Additional material is needed to allow examination of Mississippi specimens with SEM.
