Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on mayfly species in the Lake Hovsgol region in Mongolia. It explains that collections from the region in 1995–1997 and in 2002–2003 yielded only 56 species. The chapter presents a list of the 28 newly recorded mayfly species for Mongolia. It predicts that additional intensive sampling in the Hovsgol region will uncover additional national and regional records and undescribed species because the mayfly species fauna of this region are still very incompletely known. The chapter also provides a better understanding of the taxa that may be important for using macroinvertebrates to monitor surface-water quality in the region.

Keywords: mayfly; Lake Hovsgol; Mongolia; macroinvertebrates; surface-water quality
