ZHOU Chang-Fa ① ZHENG Le-Yi ② ZHOU Kai-Ya ① (①Institute of Genetic Resources, College of Life Sciences, Nanjing Normal University, Nanjing 210097; ②Department of Biology, Nankai University, Tianjin 300071, China)  
Mayfly nymphs can be divided into lentic and lotic groups.Lentic nymphs can live freely in the water,amid the slit and bury themselves in the stream bed.Lotic nymphs can be found in the water current,adhering to the substrate,inhabiting aquatic vegetation or hiding under stones.Different kinds of mayfly nymphs with diverse morphology prefer different aquatic habitats.This indicates that there is a close relationship between species divergence,nymphal morphology derivation and microhabitat.
