New species added to the Irish Trichoptera List – Hydroptila lotensis

November 1, 2019

A new species, Hydroptila lotensis Mosely, 1930, has been added to the Irish Trichoptera list by O’Connor & O’Connor (2019). Males and females of H. lotensis were swept from vegetation along the River Liffey, Co. Kildare in June 2019. This brings the number of Trichoptera known from Ireland to 156.
