*Paraleptophlebia mollis

This common name refers to only one species.

Mayfly Species Paraleptophlebia mollis

These are very rarely called Gray Quills.
This species often emerges together with Paraleptophlebia strigula and Paraleptophlebia guttata, and the combined effect can be a good fishable hatch. The latter two are much less famous than mollis, but Knopp and Cormier say they are more reliable.
