Arcynopteryx compacta

This stonefly is one that is fairly common in higher altitude lakes, especially in western North America. I have collected it in higher lakes in Glacier National Park, Montana. Dick Baumann tells me that in a recent publication this stonefly has been renamed Skwala compacta.

Hi Bob,

When checking out Skwala compacta, I noticed that the Valid Stonefly Names for North America list maintained by Ed DeWalt has not been updated since 3/19/2009. Do you have any insight into why that might be?
