Keep your eyes peeled for the Orange-striped stonefly

The Orange-striped stonefly is the subject of a new survey by the Riverfly Recording Schemes. British populations of the Orange-striped stonefly have recently been classified as a seperate species to Perlodes microcephalus, a species common across the rest of Europe. The new name for the British species is Perlodes mortoni. We need to know the distribution of Orange-striped stoneflies in the UK to confirm its species status and help inform conservation action. See the species survey page for more information and to download the survey flier.
