Heptagenia pulla (Golden Dun) Mayfly Nymph Pictures

 Like most Alaskan mayflies, this one is tricky to identify to the species level. See the discussion section for an informative chat about this one's ID. The current leaning is to call it a fairly immature Heptagenia pulla nymph, but a case has been made for Heptagenia elegantula as well.

This mayfly was collected from Nome Creek on July 10th, 2011 and added to Troutnut.com on July 13th, 2011.
