Posts: 24In this case, I'm completely sure about the genus. In Iberian Peninsula are cited three Epeorus species: E. alpicola, E. sylvicola and E. torrentium. Which one can be this insect?

Flying in small groups above a road, in high mountain, Benasque, Aragon, Spain, in the Pyrenees mountains, at 1400 meters high, in a zone with quick river of clean and cool water, with rocks and stones. All surrounded by pine (Pinus sylvestris) forest. Wingspan: about 25-30 mm.

I can't help you out, but I did want to mention how beautiful that first picture is. What wonderful color you captured.
