Pictures of 5 Stonefly Specimens in the Family Nemouridae:
Female 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.

I'm not positive on the ID on this one -- I can't see the defining characteristics well enough to confirm.
This is a female. Males of the same species in the area had very short wings.In this picture: Stonefly Family Nemouridae (Forestflies).
