(15179) CATLING, P.M., 2001. Decline of Gomphus f. fratemus (Odonata: Gomphidae) in Lake Erie. Great Lakes Ent. 34(1): 1-7. – (2326 Scrivens Dr., R.R. 3, Metcalfe, ON, KOA 2PO, CA). Collections and literature reports indicate that the sp. was abundant on the shoreline prior to 1960. The 1999 and 2000 surveys did not result in any observations. It is concluded that the sp. has declined substantially and is possibly extirpated from the lake. The decline appears to have occurred between 1950 and I960, and thus approximates the mid-1950 decline of burrowing mayflies, which has been associated with warm weather oxygen depletion and pollution. It is likely that the causes of G. fratemus decline include climatic warming, pollution, changes to the shoreline, other effects of shoreline development and introduced spp. (15180) DAS, A., 2001.
