Taeniopteryx nivalis (Early Black Stonefly) Stonefly NymphTaeniopteryx nivalis (Early Black Stonefly) Stonefly Nymph View 2 PicturesI found this nymph wriggling in the surface film during a hatch of related Strophopteryx adults. This nymph died in transport so it's not alive in the photos, but it's pretty close to its live colors.
