Hi Hank.

Welcome to our forum and to troutnut. Actually this is the place. This site
has some amazingly knowledgeable people that I feel comfortable saying,
they will have your answers. A great deal of the member are in the western
region, from Mexico city to Alaska. Some of professionals here gave the specie
status to many bugs you will find.

Listing the "bugs of New Mexico" would be a rather daunting task. So, how about if I simply start by listing the New Mexico mayfly genera (including common names) which are likely to be of some interest to a fly fisher:

Baetidae - Acentrella - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Baetis - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Baetodes - Bluewinged Olive

Baetidae - Camelobaetidius - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Centroptilum - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Cloeodes - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Fallceon - Bluewinged Olive
Baetidae - Labiobaetis - Bluewinged Olive
Caenidae - Caenis - Bluewinged Olive
Ephemerellidae - Attenella - Small Buuewinged Olive
Ephemerellidae - Drunella - Slatewinged Olive/Western Green Drake
Ephemerellidae - Ephemerella - Pale Morning Dun
Ephemerellidae - Serratella - Small Western Dark Hendrickson
Ephemerellidae - Timpanoga - Great Bluewinged Red Quill
Ephemeridae - Ephemera - Brown Drake
Ephemeridae - Hexagenia - Big Yellow May
Heptageniidae - Cinygmula - Dark Red Quill
Heptageniidae - Epeorus - Pink Lady/Slate Brown Dun
Heptageniidae - Heptagenia - Pale Evening Dun

Every area/state is going to have a huge disparity in the type of water you will fish, or the river you will fish...spring creek vs. freestone river, high Mt small stream vs. lower elevation big river.
