Xavier_Carp,

It looks similar to a stonefly species we have in WA, but I don't believe that genus is distributed beyond the NW coastal region of the US, so have asked Dr. Richard Baumann if he recognizes it. Will post his response when received.

Xavier-

Dr. Baumann's response:

The stonefly nymph is probably a member of the genus Anacroneuria. This is the most common genus in Mexico and Central America. It is in the family Perlidae.


My addition:

There appear to be only two North American species of this genus, and only one of them being present in Mexico (MX):

Anacroneuria lineata (Pickett), 1924) BE, HO, MX, NI, TX
Anacroneuria wipukupa Baumann and Olson, 1984 AZ
Best regards,
