This topic is about the Mayfly Genus Cinygmula

This is primarily a Western genus. Cinygmula ramaleyi is the most important species, producing good hatches in the West. Cinygmula reticulata may also be relevant.

There is only one Eastern species, Cinygmula subaequalis, and its importance is minor. Read more...

There are 20 more specimens...

Interesting. It's not a simple, nor perfect, world. Look close enough and you begin to see the "imperfections" -undertones of religious judgment intended. I think Darwin called it "variations", twisting the idea into something we can run with.

Lloyd & Paul -

Good stuff guys. Back to fishing: Red nymphs! I'm going to tie up some in my heptageniid style in the spirit of pax between imitation and attraction. No beadheads though, I'm not going that far!:)

Kurt, that was what followed from my exposure to "the mystery of the blue lobsters"; That maybe trying to mimic isn't always the best way to catch fish. I would love to chat about that one, but I've got to get some work out.

C'mon, Kurt, I'm pretty sure that you can find some red beads....;)

Here are some images of red form Rhithrogena:

This one is from Colorado.

This R. impersonata is from Michigan.

This R. impersonata is from Massachusetts (notice how the mouthparts are projecting a bit like Cinygmula).

Ughh...

BTW - thanks for the photos. The Cinygmula looking one sure would confuse in the hand! Looking closer though, it appears to be a membrane of some sort attached to the dorsum, so all is still right with the world.

Take another look, Kurt. Check the ventral (2nd) photo of the same nymph.

Ha! What the heck! Is Roger gluing body parts together on us? You know he is a computer wiz as well as a bug wiz. He does muck about on that other website as well.:)

Roger is a clever guy, Kurt, but in this instance, I suspect it is ol' Mother Nature who is "mucking" with us. ;)

Ha Ha!:) I know, I know... You're probably right.... But the silence is deafening. Do I hear soft chuckling off in the distance? Perhaps Washington way?

Although I may be silent when I can't think of an appropriate response, it doesn't mean I'm not listening. :-)

Here's a link to an apparently red R impersonata:

I have a photo of an Epeorus with red gills -I believe it was hemaglobin in the gills. Just not enough O2 in that stream tank of mine for Epeorus. Will post eventually.
