Abstract
In the presented checklist, 63 species of mayflies are listed for Belgium. Four species are reported here for the first time for belgium: Baetis (labiobaetis) atrebatinus (Eaton, 1870), Kageronia fuscogrisea (Retzius, 1783), Rhithrogena beskidensis (Albatercedor & Sowa, 1987) and Rhithrogena hercynia (Landa, 1969). Based on their occurrence in the neighbouring countries, a few additional species may still be expected. During the last few years, 58 species could still be collected in the field. The five remaining species were not recordd for at least 30 years: Baetis (Acentrella) sinaicus (Bogoescu, 1931), Choroterpes picteti (Eaton, 1871), Metreletus balcanicus (Ulmer, 1920), raptobaetopus tenellus (Albarda, 1878) and Siphlonurus (Siphlonurus) lacustris (Eaton, 1870). these species are either regionally extinct, which is almost certainly the case for C. picteti, while some others have probably been overlooked, which is probably the case for S. lacustris. An overview is given of the literature dealing with the belgian mayflies.
