Tallaperla (Roachflies) Stonefly Nymph Pictures

 This is the first specimen of the Peltoperlidae stonefly family that I've collected. It's very small and probably an 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.), but I'm not choosy about new bugs.

This stonefly was collected from Mongaup Creek on April 19th, 2006 and added to Troutnut.com on April 21st, 2006.
