Abstract

A new species of Australian burrowing mayfly, Jappa campbelli sp. n. (Leptophlebiidae, Ephemeroptera) is described from reared adults, larvae, and eggs. Line drawings and SEMs of key characters are included. This species is the first in the genus to be described from temperate eastern Australia. In the adult it can be characterized by V-shaped and slender penes and purple-brown markings surrounding the bulla and base of MA fork in the forewing. In the larva it can be characterized by double serrate cephalic horns and a marginally ridged labrum in the head. Distributional and ecological notes are provided.
