I've been looking for one of these for a while. After I realized that everything I was calling Stenonema had been renamed to Maccaffertium, the section for this once-popular genus was empty. Now with this one from a small stream in the Catskills I'm pretty sure I've got an actual Stenonema again.

I would welcome a verification from those of you with more entomological training, but it looks right to me.

Is this insect in this genus solely based on its gill structure?
It seems odd that there is only one species in this new classification.
I think I have a specimen that was found on 5/18/07.
Flyfishing is a state of mind! .............. Q.g.

I don't know, but I doubt the gill structure is the entire reason for genus differentiation. It's probably just the most visible of many differences.
