Posts: 34This is a uenoid. I know the genus, but I can't think of it now...sorry, I'll try to remember to look it up if no one else knows it.

David-

Probably Neophylax (Autumn Mottled Sedge). This genus has four species in NY. Most likely itís N. concinnus, as this is the only one (of those four) that Gary LaFontaine considered to be sufficiently important to flyfishers to include in his book. However, the other NY resident species are N. consimilis, N. fuscus, and N. oligius.
Best regards,
