Fingernet - Dolophilodes distinctus

Fingernet - Dolophilodes distinctus
Nashville, Tennessee, USA
July 6, 2008
Does anyone know about these as indicators of water quality, or sensitivty to disturbance? These individuals live in a spring/waterfall in an area we are seeking to protect, and are wondering which inhabitants are sensitive species. Any insights or pointers would be helpful, thanks!

Excerpt from an email to Noah from Jason Robinson:
"It's probably Wormaldia but there is a taxonomic mess in this group compounded by the paucity of observations and specimens and collections. Recent barcoding efforts make it clear that we are ignorant about the relationships between many eastern philopotamids and I have some undescribed species that may have been masquerading in collections under names they do not deserve."
