THE FIRST DNA BARCODE RECORD FOR Rhyacophila bosnica Schmid, 1970 AND PAIRING OF ADULT AND LARVAL LIFE STAGES
Keywords:Trichoptera, DNA barcode, Rhyacophila bosnica, larva
Rhyacophila Pictet, 1834 is globally distributed and highly diverse genus of caddisflies (Trichoptera), characterized by numerous regionally endemic species. In the Balkan Peninsula, the highest number of Rhyacophila species (23) was recorded for Bosnia and Herzegovina. Rhyacophila bosnica Schmid, 1970 is found only in the Balkan Dinaric region, with a locus typicus in Vučja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Like with many species of Trichoptera, the morphology of its larva is still unknown. Therefore, DNA barcoding approach was used to link two developmental stages. In this paper, we report on the first DNA barcode record for this species.
