Caddisflies (Trichoptera) of the Kuril Archipelago

Document Type


Publication Date



We report the complete data of the caddisfly specimens collected during the seven annual expeditions of the International Kuril Island Project, and provide a list of caddisfly species known from the Kuril Islands. Caddisflies were collected from 21 out of 30 major islands, and collected from 14 islands for the first time. A total of 19 families, 45 genera and 98 species were collected during the expeditions, including 28 new species distribution records for the archipelago. These records bring the present total numbers to 20 families, 50 genera and 123 species. Glossosoma inops is placed in the junior subjective synonym of G. ussuricum.
