Posts: 2I have seen Isos with the forward edge of their wings an olive color. These were also on the upper East Branch. I tied some using a permanent marker to tint the leading edges olive. But, it seems that the standard pattern works as well.

Welcome aboard, Ken. Isonychia seem to come in a wide variety of wing colors. Sounds like the ones you observed on the upper East Branch may have looked something like this:

Incidentally, you might want to update your profile with location info so folks aren't forced to guess what part of the world you are from.

Posts: 2The leading edges were a much more prominent green, covering about 25-30 %. The green was quite bright, not a subdued olive.

Upper East Branch of the Delaware?

The Iso body colors seem to vary a great deal as well, from green to gray to dark brown.
