Abstract

Six species of Corynoneurinae are now known from the northeastern states. Of these, Corynoneura oxfordana is new, being most similar to taris, from which it may be separated by the much longer terminal antennal segment in the male and by costal bristles and wing length in the female. Thienemanniella similis and T. xena occur in small streams, as do also Corynoneura taris and C. oxfordana. C. scutellata and C. celeripes occur in quiet pond water on floating vegetation. Some species, and possibly all, have a long emergence season, adults occurring in Ohio in every month from March to November.
