New species added to the Irish Trichoptera list – Hydropsyche fulvipes (Curtis, 1834)

February 9, 2019

After a number of false starts, Hydropsyche fulvipes (Curtis, 1834) has been added to the Irish Trichoptera list by O’Connor et al., (2019). A female adult was taken on a tributary of the River Sow at Edenvale, County Wexford on 14th August 2018. This brings the list of Trichoptera known from Ireland to 153.
