Epeorus vitreus (Sulphur) Mayfly Nymph Pictures

 I suspect this is an Epeorus vitreus nymph. At the current 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.), it's tough to make out the pair of dots on the tergites (

which signify that species, but with zooming and contrast enhancement they become evident.


This mayfly was collected from the Namekagon River on January 13th, 2004 and added to Troutnut.com on January 25th, 2006.
