status

 

Amphinemura palmeni (Koponen, 1917)  ( Nemouridae  ).

Larvae of this species were originally identified as A. linda Ricker, 1952  , now a junior synonym of A. palmeni (Boumans & Baumann 2012)  . It has been recorded from cold water streams in parts of central North America. The nearest records to Nova Scotia (as A. linda  ) were from central Quebec (Harper & Hynes 1971d). Nine larvae were collected from site 9. It is not clear why it was absent from the other streams, despite similarities in physical and chemical characteristics.
