Misthodotes is an extinct genus of mayflies which existed during the Permian of what is now the United States and Russia. It was described by E.H. Sellards in 1909.[1] A new species, M. tshernovae, was described from the Upper Permian epoch of Russia by N. D. Sinitshenkova and D. V. Vassilenko in 2012.[2]
