Posts: 24This one is very common into my city and could be the adult of the nymph showed in the last thread. It's a big one, about 20 mm. wingspan. Two cerci, very big eyes and very conspicuous dark venation. Could be Ecdyonurus cf. venosus?

This one is about to becomes a ctrab spider lunch.

Zaragoza, NE Spain.

Many thanks,

Yes, Ecdyonurus venosus, however I suspect the body length (not including tails) may be more like 14 mm.
Best regards,

Posts: 24Wow!!! Many thanks Taxon!! You have identified it at species level! I had doubts because there are more similar species in genus. Yes, the body length, as you said, I thinks is about 15 mm. (without cerci).

Then, I think that the nymph in the last post is from this species, due to any other Ecdyonurus is seen into my city and this one is very common.
