  1. order plecoptera

    Order Plecoptera is a classification of insects that includes species commonly known as stoneflies. These insects are typically found near streams and rivers during their nymph stage, and are characterized by two pairs of membranous wings, long antennae, and an abdomen that ends in two or three thread-like tails. They are predominantly herbivorous and have a complex life cycle with aquatic nymphs and terrestrial adults, both stages playing crucial roles in the ecosystem. The name Plecoptera translates to "braided-wings" from the Greek. They are used as indicators of water quality in ecological studies because they are sensitive to water pollution.
