Female Amphinemura (Tiny Winter Blacks) Stonefly AdultFemale Amphinemura (Tiny Winter Blacks) Stonefly Adult View 5 PicturesA few of these tiny stoneflies were among the only species of aquatic insect adults in the air on this particular afternoon, with most of the action coming from a species of Epeorus mayfly. I somehow forgot to photograph this one on the usual ruler, but I recall it was very, very small, with an abdomen no more than 1mm in girth and the body, not counting the wings, probably just 5-7mm long.

Megaleuctra stigmata (Little Black Needlefly) Stonefly AdultMegaleuctra stigmata (Little Black Needlefly) Stonefly Adult View 3 PicturesThis is one of rarest stoneflies in western Montana. It is a bit unusual that it is fairly abundant in a handful of streams that empty into the east side of Flathead Lake. A very beautiful bug.

Female Strophopteryx fasciata (Mottled Willowfly) Stonefly AdultFemale Strophopteryx fasciata (Mottled Willowfly) Stonefly Adult View 4 PicturesSeveral stoneflies of this species were the first adult insects I found in 2004 when I started this site. The hatch was sparse but lasted a good part of the day, and I noted a few good rises despite the early season cold. They ended up struggling on the water's surface fairly often.
