Rhyacophila zwickorum Malicky 1972  was described based on material collected from Ardeşen (Rize); the redescription given below is also based on material collected from Rize Province.

General description. Antennae, maxillary palps, legs, and wings in alcohol brown. Length of each anterior wing of male 7.5– 8 mm (n= 5).

Male genitalia ( Figures 30–34View FIGURES 30 – 34): Segment IX with apicodorsal lobe ( Figs. 30, 31View FIGURES 30 – 34). Sclerotized bands articulating on segment X rather long ( Figs. 30, 31View FIGURES 30 – 34); in lateral view each with dorsal apex pointed and posterior edge rounded ( Fig. 31View FIGURES 30 – 34); in caudal view segment X with posterolateral edges convex laterally and mesally, with narrow, vertical sclerotized tubercle in middle ( Fig. 32View FIGURES 30 – 34). Coxopodite of each inferior appendage having apical edge of sclerotized basal tendon with hook-shaped projection on ventral corner; harpago somewhat dilated on posterodorsal edge, tip blunt ( Fig. 30View FIGURES 30 – 34). In lateral view, dorsolateral processes of phallotheca long, almost reaching apex of phallicata, each with basal 1 / 3 rd three-four times as tall as distal 2 / 3 rds, triangular, acute at dorsal tip, distal 2 / 3 rds tapered to sharp point ( Fig. 33View FIGURES 30 – 34); in dorsal view, these processes very broad at their bases, tapering to acute apices ( Fig. 34View FIGURES 30 – 34); large dorsomesal band of phallicata covered with small tubercles ( Fig. 34View FIGURES 30 – 34); apical portion of phallicata with narrow sclerotized band ( Fig. 34View FIGURES 30 – 34); paramere slender, dilated at oval apex, its crown densely fringed with about 34 long, plumose spines ( Fig. 33View FIGURES 30 – 34).

Female genitalia ( Figs. 35–39View FIGURES 35 – 39): In lateral view, sclerotized part of segment VIII rather short, about 1.1 times as long ventrally as tall anteriorly, and posterolateral edges each irregularly crenulate and slightly concave above mesal posteroventral lobe ( Fig. 35View FIGURES 35 – 39); in dorsal view, fully sclerotized and posterior edge convex ( Fig. 36View FIGURES 35 – 39); in ventral view, median lobe of posterior edge ~ 4 times as broad as long, evenly rounded ( Fig. 37View FIGURES 35 – 39). Anterior process of bursa copulatrix oval and its posteroventral edge smooth in lateral view ( Fig. 38View FIGURES 35 – 39); posterior process broad subdistally and becoming very narrow towards tip in lateral and ventral views ( Figs. 38, 39View FIGURES 35 – 39).
