Posts: 34I am not 100% sure, but I think it is a Chloroperlid. If not, it is a Perlodid (I don't think it is though). Do you have pictures of outstretched wings? Do you know the size?

It's been a long time, but I think this one was pretty small. You're probably right about Chloroperlidae.

Posts: 1Looks like Perlodidae to me. In the ventral view, notice the metathoracic sternacostal sutures that extend laterally from the anterior end of furcal pits.

Thanks Motacilla. I've moved it to Perlodidae.
