Mayfly Genus Heterocloeon (Tiny Blue-Winged Olives)

Heterocloeon is one of two genera along with Acentrella that can be differentiated from other baetids by the presence of a conical mesonotal projection. All but one species of this genus can be further separated from Acentrella by the lack of venation in the tiny hindwings. There is little evidence that the species of Heterocloeon are of much significance to anglers.
