The collection has received the first specimen of the mayfly species Dolania americana Edmunds & Traver (Behningiidae). It was collected in North Carolina from the Little River in Cumberland Co. on the Fort Bragg property. Dolania americana is a rare species found in the southeastern states. The nymphs burrow in the sand at the bottom of large rivers. I want to thank Clyde Sorenson for collecting the specimen and Matt Green for determining the specimen.
