Ephemeroptera (Mayflies) Insect Nymph Pictures

 This burrowing mayfly nymph is so small I couldn't even tell what family it's in. My guess is it's a very early instar (Instar: Many invertebrates molt through dozens of progressively larger and better-developed stages as they grow. Each of these stages is known as an instar. Hard-bodied nymphs typically molt through more instars than soft-bodied larvae.) Ephemera simulans nymph.

This insect was collected from unknown on January 12th, 2004 and added to Troutnut.com on January 25th, 2006.
