The morphology of the abdomen of the mayfly, Povilla adusta Navas (Polymitarcidae) has been studied from dissections of muscles and nerves in male and female imagines and in a female nymph and a number of apparently very primitive traits have been disclosed. The findings have been compared to similar structures in other mayflies and, as a result, a revised interpretation of the genital and postgenital segments of Ephemeroptera is proposed.
