Perhaps one reason Cinygma mayflies do not create much interest for fishermen is because of their habit. They seem to prefer these small headwater streams, often streams without trout.

Thanks Bob. I've never seen one of them and wondered where I might find them. There are records of two species of Cinygma in the Fairbanks area, though, so I'll keep a close eye out for them in my samples and maybe try some little headwaters.

It's interesting that it is perching like an ephemerillid.
