Introduction / Introdução
This checklist aims to include all Ephemeroptera (mayfly) species which have been recorded in Angola (Fig. 1) to date. Some are confirmed from recent collections and others are tentatively placed as unknown species. It must be seen as provisional, a starting point to record mayfly diversity in this country. Much further ground–truthing is still needed, and this list will periodically be updated.

Esta lista de verificação visa incluir todas as espécies de Ephemeroptera que foram registradas para Angola (Fig. 1) até o momento. Algumas são confirmadas por coleções recentes e outras são provisoriamente colocadas como espécies desconhecidas. Esta lista deve ser vista como provisória, um ponto de partida para registrar a diversidade de efemérides neste país. Ainda é necessário muito mais em campo e essa lista será atualizada periodicamente.

Please note that the current valid names of the species (indicated by ) are followed by subordinate names when these exist (indicated by ○). The subordinate names are followed by an abbreviation in parentheses, indicating their status. All names, valid or subordinate, are followed by the author of that name and the date that name was published. The authors responsible for the latest names changes are indicated with each taxon listed as synonyms. Definitions of abbreviations and terms used are given as an appendix at the end. The distributions of the species from other African countries and the rivers within Angola from which they have been collected are indicated next to the current species name.
See Barber–James and Ferreira (2019) for a more detailed account of species distribution within the country.


Observe que os nomes válidos atuais das espécies (indicados por ●) são seguidos por nomes subordinados quando existem (indicados por ○). Os nomes subordinados são seguidos por uma abreviação entre parênteses, indicando seu status. Todos os nomes, válidos ou subordinados, são seguidos pelo autor desse nome e pela data em que o nome foi publicado. Os autores responsáveis ​​pelas alterações dos nomes mais recentes são indicados com cada táxon listado como sinônimo. Definições de abreviaturas e termos usados ​​são apresentados como apêndice no final. As distribuições das espécies de outros países africanos e os rios dentro de Angola nos quais as espécies foram coletadas são indicados ao lado do nome atual da espécie.Veja Barber–James e Ferreira (2019) para uma descrição mais detalhada da distribuição das espécies no país.

Appendix: Definitions of abbreviations and terms used:
(comb.) combination: a name recombined with a generic name different from the original;
(dub.)  nomen dubium: a name that is of dubious status in that it cannot presently be determined what the species named as such actually is; although all nomina dubia have a generic name associated with them, keep in mind that some of them cannot actually be placed to any genus with confidence due to the lack, or loss, of original material on which the names were based;
(hom.) homonym: the name (as the unique combination of genus and species names) is or becomes the same as one used for another species at an earlier time; the subordinate homonym, therefore, had to be replaced with a new name, i.e. the newer of the two names is invalid;
(id.) misidentification: another valid species (not a subordinate name) with which the species has incorrectly been associated in the past;
(orig.) original: the original name, including the original name in its correct form if it has been changed from an incorrectly formed name;
(renam.) renamed: a new name given because the original or recombination of the original is a secondary homonym (the same as that which has been given to another species previously); the species name that has priority is also indicated within the parentheses along with (hom.);
(spell.) spelling: a misspelled or incorrect form of the name;
(stat.) status: represents a change from species to subspecies status within the same species;
(syn.) synonym: another name that was proposed independently for the same species. Usually, the earliest published name takes priority.
(in part) some of the members of this species were originally described as another species.
[sic] name written as stated by author, even though incorrect.

Apêndice: Definições de abreviações e termos utilizados:
(comb.) um nome recombinado a um nome genérico diferente do original;
(dub.) nomen dubium: nome de status duvidoso, pois atualmente não é possível determinar qual é realmente a espécie denominada como tal; embora todas as nomina dubia tenham um nome genérico associado a elas, lembre-se de que algumas delas não podem realmente ser atribuídas a nenhum gênero com confiança devido à falta ou perda de material original no qual os nomes foram baseados;
(hom.) homônimo: o nome (como a combinação única de nomes de gênero e espécie) é ou se torna o mesmo que o usado para outra espécie em um período anterior; o homônimo subordinado, portanto, teve que ser substituído por um novo nome, ou seja, o mais novo dos dois nomes é invalido;
(id.) identificação incorreta: outra espécie válida (não um nome subordinado) à qual a espécie foi incorretamente associada no passado;
(orig.) original: o nome original, incluindo o nome original em sua forma correta se tiver sido alterado de um nome formado incorretamente;
(renam.) um novo nome dado porque o original ou a recombinação do original é um homônimo secundário (o mesmo que foi dado a outra espécie anteriormente); o nome da espécie que tem prioridade também é indicado entre parênteses, juntamente com (hom.);
(spell.) ortografia: uma forma incorretamente grafada do nome;
(stat.)  representa uma mudança do status de espécie para subespécie dentro da mesma espécie;
(syn.) sinônimo: outro nome proposto independentemente para a mesma espécie. Geralmente, o nome publicado mais antigo tem prioridade.
(in part) alguns dos membros desta espécie foram originalmente descritos como outra espécie.
[sic] nome escrito como declarado pelo autor, mesmo que incorreto.
