I've really been enjoying looking at Dr. Newell's additions to the "Aquatic Insect Encyclopedia," but there seems to have been some sort of mix-up here. The 2nd photograph is an female ephemerellid dun, possibly something like Ephemerella tibialis.

Looks like tibialis to me also, but I can't find where the photos are associated other than in this thread. As I write this the dun photo disappeared so I think Jason's on it Lloyd.

The dun photo's still there. I sent Bob an email about it. I didn't want to delete it until he sees which one is in the wrong place, so it's easy for him to put it back online in the right place.
