This species produces sparse hatches.
The origin of the name of this species is interesting, as described in the original publication (Eaton 1884): "I have assigned another to this species, which has reference
to its original captor, whose untimely death was primarily due to exposure in the course of the expedition when the insect was obtained." It does not say who the captor was.
I guess mayfly collecting is dangerous business! That's especially true given that it would have been collected mid-summer, because the original description only included the male adult. Where & WhenRegion: West
Time Of Year (?): Late June to late July
Hatching BehaviorTime Of Day (?): Afternoon
