New distribution data from Carbon Co., Wyoming, extend the USA range of Paraleptophlebia praepedita (Eaton, 1884) westwards, with the nearest records being from eastern Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri. The new record is based on male adults collected from riparian vegetation. Paraleptophlebia praepedita is one of at least five predominantly eastern North American aquatic insect species with disjunct populations in the uranium mining areas of the western North Platte River drainage.
