Oh yeah, gotta have some hellgies! Corydalus sp.
Can't get away from midges! A mixed bag of Chironomidae, some to be identified to genus?
Riffle beetles too! Macronychus adult
Larvae too, Neoelmis sp., a nice shot showing the closed front coxal cavities
Not many stoneflies turned up in our samples but here's a nice big Acroneuria for ya!
Too big to see the whole thing at once! Dragonhunter nymph, Hagenius brevistylus, listed rare in Indiana!
The only crayfish species we collected were of the phallic crayfish, Orconectes putnami. Here you can see the male parts that gave it the name!
Not easy to see but these are snail-cased caddisflies, at least their cases (we did find animals in some of them) - Helicopsyche, this might be the first time I've seen these!
Hard to see but this one has a critter in it!
How they all ended up!
How they ended up that way...yours truly refamiliarizing himself with aquatic entomology! (Ah, like riding a bicycle!)
WHAT ARE THESE TINY THINGS???
Good thing this books has lots of drawings!!! (Merritt, Cummins, & Berg, 4th edition)
Another habitat shot...the lowest section of this stream was classic riffle/pool complexes & had the highest invertebrate diversity
Side channel - high habitat diversity in a small stream & it showed in the biota
Finally...been a looooong day in the field, holding my damp socks, and yes, I need some dental work

|Got a few more to show. Remember, this is all to be repeated this May! I got my work cut out for me this field season... ;oD|
|No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...|
