Description

Mayfly Central is a place, a program, and an information resource. It is located in the Department of Entomology at Purdue University, where it is associated with the Laboratory of Aquatic Entomology. The program is a multidimensional research and education program dedicated to the pursuit and dissemination of knowledge about mayflies, or the insect order Ephemeroptera. The resource involves information about mayflies, especially the taxonomy, ecology, behavior and life history of species in North America and Central America, and systematics of pannote mayflies, burrowing mayflies, small minnow mayflies, and flatheaded mayflies throughout the world. Undergirding all of this is a research and reference collection of over 250,000 mayfly specimens from throughout the world representing most known taxa and numerous new taxa yet to be described. Most information about mayflies and why mayflies are important currently may be found under The Mayflies of North America
