Blue-winged Olives

Tiny Baetis mayflies are perhaps the most commonly encountered and imitated by anglers on all American trout streams due to their great abundance, widespread distribution, and trout-friendly emergence habits.

Troutnut is a project started in 2003 by salmonid ecologist Jason "Troutnut" Neuswanger to help anglers and fly tyers unabashedly embrace the entomological side of the sport. Learn more about Troutnut or support the project for an enhanced experience here.

Unfortunately I forgot to photograph this one next to the ruler, but I seem to remember it being on the small side for a Perlid, maybe around 2cm.

This stonefly was collected from Aquarium in New York on May 6th, 2007 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on May 18th, 2007.

In earlier comments on specimen #756 (Paragnetina, male), I mentioned that I thought this might be the same genus. The appearance of the subgenital plate (in the 3rd photo) seems to confirm that suspicion.
