This one was surprisingly straightforward to identify. The lack of a sclerite at the base of the lateral hump narrows the field quite a bit, and the other options followed fairly obvious characteristics to Clostoeca, which only has one species, Clostoeca disjuncta.

I tie a lot of Adams' standard dries. I know a lot of you prefer the hen necks for the wings. But I like the rooster, because of the barring. The hen wings get wet, turn black and soggy, and the fly is hard to float and difficult to see. I used to get round tipped rooster feathers from an outfit called Cascade, and distributed by Cortland. But I can't find them anymore. Anybody know where I can find good round-tipped grizzly rooster necks?
