Posts: 3Thanks for the ID on the last pic.

I'm pretty sure these are:

1. Ecdyonurus torrentis - large brook dun

2. Plecoptera perlodidae - yellow sally

3. Baetis muticus - Iron blue

4. Hydropsyche

Am I OK with these?

I don't know my UK species, and some (like Hydropsyche) might be hard to tell apart from close relatives in those pictures, but within those limitations your IDs look good to me. Hopefully somebody who betters knows the UK can chime in.
