Trichoptera Taxonomic revision new subspecies identification mitochondrial COI distribution


We present the description of two new subspecies of the Rhyacophila fasciata Group: Rhyacophila fasciata delici Kučinić & Valladolid (ssp. nov.), broadly distributed in Croatia and present also in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and R. fasciata viteceki Valladolid & Kučinić (ssp. nov.), found in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Our study of the morphology of adults, as well as our analysis of the barcode region of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I (mtCOI) gene and geographical distribution confirm the differences of the two new subspecies with the nominal species R. f. fasciata, also found in both countries.
