This topic is about the Mayfly Genus Epeorus

There is remarkable variety of form and color within this prolific genus of fast-water mayflies. Different species are found across the country, and several cause good hatches. Fly anglers are likely to encounter the lesser species on occasion, too.

The best Epeorus hatch in the East is Epeorus pleuralis, the famous Quill Gordon, the first abundant large mayfly hatch of the year. Epeorus vitreus comes a little later and is important in both the East and Midwest.

In the West, Epeorus longimanus dominates in fast, high-altitude streams, while Epeorus albertae inhabits slower and lower waters. Read more...

Thanks. Good catch. That must be a recent change, or at least recently added to the mayfly species list at Purdue.

I have one small thing on my programming to-do list before I can make the change, but I'll do it soon.

Thanks for compiling that list! It will be a big time-saver when I'm ready to update my taxa.
