A check list of the mayfly fauna (Insecta; Ephemeroptera) of the Republic of North Macedonia with a short literature review
This paper summarizes published records contributing to our knowledge regarding the Ephemeroptera fauna from the territory of the Republic of North Macedonia. Based on this comprehensive review the recent mayfliesâ€™ fauna of North Macedonia consists of 80 species that belongs to 20 subgenera, 28 genera and 15 families. As the presence of two of those species (Palingenia longicauda (Olivier, 1791) and Neoephemera maxima (Joly, 1870)) is doubtful, we could assume that the more accurate number of species is 78. A further increase in the number of recorded species could be expected, as some taxa (Ecdyonurus and Rhithrogena, for example) are insufficiently studied at the moment.
