Summary
This book is the second in a series designed to facilitate identification of South American insects likely to be encountered in, on, or near water and wetlands. After a general introduction to the study of Ephemeroptera, the mayflies, it provides illustrated keys for the identification of all species in South America that were described by the beginning of 2002. It is the only up-to-date comprehensive work of its kind encompassing the entire South American continent. The many illustrations facilitate identification of a mayfly specimen to species with reasonable certainty if the life stage has been described. If it has not been described, that is also clear from the information in the keys, letting taxonomists know where future studies would be fruitful. The book will be indispensable to all scientists and students investigating the mayflies of South America.
