Does any one know if this mayfly is found outside of New Zealand? In particular, is it found in the streams of Hokkaido Japan?

Thanks in advance,

A checklist of Japanese mayflies can be found on this webpage:

Scroll down to:
Ishiwata S-I. 2001. A checklist of Japanese Ephemeroptera. Pages 55-84 in Bae YJ (ed.) The 21st Century and Aquatic Entomology in East Asia. Proceedings of the 1st Symposium of Aquatic Entomologists in East Asia. The Korean Society of Aquatic Entomology, Korea.

A PDF file is available for download there.

Based on the Checklist of Japanese Mayflies which Konchu located, the only Oligoneuriid found in Japan is Oligoneuriella rhenana, and it is apparently only found on the island of Honshu.

Japanese Mayfly Distribution should be a bit easier to use than the .pdf in case you should be curious about the distribution of any more Japanese mayfly species.
