**Suwallia pallidula

This common name refers to only one species.

Stonefly Species Suwallia pallidula

These are sometimes called Yellow Sallflies.
This species was formerly classified as Alloperla pallidula.

In my experience, most of my mid-summer collections of small yellow Chloroperlids in the northwest have keyed out to this species.
Suwallia pallidula (Sallfly) Stonefly NymphSuwallia pallidula (Sallfly) Stonefly Nymph View 6 PicturesThis specimen keys out to Suwallia, for which I did not find any nymph species keys. However, I'm placing it in Suwallia pallidula because I caught a few adults in the same spot that closely resembled the abundant nymphs and keyed them out to species. Features I noted under the microscope when keying this specimen to genus included apical (Apical: Close to the apex; tip or end.) hairs of cercal segments that were directed at posterior (Posterior: Toward the back of an organism's body. The phrase "posterior to" means "in back of.") angles, and the longest apical (Apical: Close to the apex; tip or end.) hairs of distal (Distal: Far from the point of attachment or origin; near the tip.) segments were shorter than their following segment.
