Found this on 2/18/19 in the Kinderhook Creek, NY near Valatie, NY.

There were lots of "winter stoneflies" (Capniidae) around but this one looks different.

Any idea?

Thanks

August - Might be an Isoperla. They're usually pretty distinctively marked but some aren't. Here's a link to one that looks similar.

Another good place to look for determined images of immature aquatic insects is Bob Henricks pages - https://www.instagram.com/buddhabob2hanlubo/ and aquaticinsectsofcentralvirginia.blogspot.com
