The caddisfly faunas of Stillfork Swamp, an unglaciated Carroll County site, and Watercress Marsh, a glaciated Columbiana County site, were evaluated in light of differences in physiography and past glacial history. The large and diverse fauna of Stillfork Swamp suggests that caddisflies, including numerous species of the predominantly northern Limnephilidae, survived the Pleistocene close to the southern extent of glaciation in eastern Ohio. The fauna of these periglacial wetlands suggests that physiography is a major factor in the distribution of Ohio Trichoptera.
