This topic is about the Mayfly Species Baetis flavistriga

This is one of the most widespread and abundant Baetis species, and it may produce fishable hatches under a variety of conditions.

This species is known in angling books by several old synonyms (Synonym: A former name of a taxon, usually a species. Entomologists frequently discover that two insects originally described as different species are one in the same, and they drop one of the names. The dropped name is said to be a synonym of the remaining name. These changes take a while to trickle into the common knowledge of anglers; for example, Baetis vagans is now a synonym of Baetis tricaudatus.), including Baetis quebecensus, Baetis levitans, Baetis cingulatus, and Baetis phoebus, in addition to the correct name.

pleased to report the emergence of a new baetis flavistriga which i have christened computatii

forum visitors using the Firefox browser who put on their bookmarks toolbar have undoubtedly noticed a tiny dark mayfly icon in a blue box next the bookmark.

well, it's breeding. came back this evening from a week out of town to discover that the little troutnut computatii had a pal over next the bookmark where formerly there was only a generic white icon. am waiting for it to show up next the other two sites that have only generic icons.

now our resident boffins will help me with the Latin ending on the new name, (i tried to use the genitive plural) and then we'll ask Jason how he got these virtual flies to multiply.

Hmmm. When I add a Bookmark for to the Bookmark Toolbar on my Mozilla Firefox browser, the favicon I get looks like this:

Some sites have them, some don't... they're very particular about their habitat requirements. :)

I get the mayfly icon using Mozilla here at home :) , but not when I log on with IE at work. :(

The poor support for "favicons" in Internet Explorer 6 is kind of annoying. The icon will show up in your bookmarks menu if you bookmark the page, but it won't show up in the address bar unless you have the exact address of the current page bookmarked. (For example, even if you have the homepage of bookmarked, you won't see the icon in the address bar from this forum page -- only from the homepage.)

Of course, using Firefox solves all these problems. :)

Can't help you with the bookmark icon, but several years ago when I asked Dr. McCafferty how to pronounce the ii ending on packii, I believe he said it was pronounced pack-ee-eye, whereas packi would be pack-eye.

You might want to check this out Roger---It is pronounced pack-ee-eye in Australin and some of the speakers in the US-- on this helper--- --- this is a pretty neat helper I use.


They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cockís wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

Cute. Just wish one (of the menu choices) was "English speaking version of Latinized Greek used for scientific names."
