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.

Some characteristics from the microscope images for the tentative species id: The postero-lateral projections are found only on segment 9, not segment 8. Based on the key in Jacobus et al. (2014), it appears to key to Neoleptophlebia adoptiva or Neoleptophlebia heteronea, same as this specimen with pretty different abdominal markings. However, distinguishing between those calls for comparing the lengths of the second and third segment of the labial palp, and this one (like the other one) only seems to have two segments. So I'm stuck on them both. It's likely that the fact that they're immature nymphs stymies identification in some important way.
27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.

Hello Muwafaq-

Somehow, I doubt yours is a serious request. However if it is, Orthoptera is the order of insects containing grasshoppers, katydids, and crickets, all of which are terrestrial, as opposed to aquatic, so you won't find much on them here. You might want to look at BugGuide, which has lots of photos of Orthopterans.
Best regards,

Not my group but a long dormant part of the brain says Dicranota/Pedicia?
