BROWN MAYFLY (Ephemera vulgata): SPECIES ACCOUNTS
Mayflies are found on all continents except Antarctica and a few small islands in the middle of the ocean. They are most abundant in mild or tropical climates.
The World Conservation Union (ICUN) lists two species of mayflies as Extinct, meaning that no members of the species are still alive, and one as Vulnerable, meaning that it faces a high risk of extinction in the wild. The main reasons for declining populations of mayflies are habitat destruction by pollution; deforestation, or the clearing of land of trees, at the margins of rivers; dam construction; and introduction of foreign fish.
