Hello, I would like to know if there are floating nymphs in the wild.
In this case, would not it be an emergent, in the final phase of the aquatic cycle?
Thank you all.

Yes, some tie floating nymph flies as emergers. They can be very effective.

They had a term for some of them back in the day called “flymphs” right?
