This chapter examines the genetic diversity of headwater-specific Japanese dipteromimid mayflies, Dipteromimus tipuliformis and Dipteromimus flavipterus, based on mitochondrial 16S rRNA gene sequences. It describes the ecological relationships or dispersal ability of these mayflies and compares them with other species living in other water systems. The findings reveal that dipteromimid mayflies have greater interpopulation genetic distances than any of the other mayfly species studied.

Keywords:   dipteromimid mayflies, headwater mayflies, Dipteromimus tipuliformis, Dipteromimus flavipterus, gene sequences, ecological relationships, dispersal ability, genetic distances
