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 was looking at an old FlyCraft paper caliper device. I never used one myself, but have seen them.
My question is this: how many believe the Golden Ratio applies, for example , to the placement of the wing on a hook?
I have watched many highly respected tiers place the wing at the 75% mark of the shank length (for example). Others, say to place the wing at "...approximately the 2/3 mark of the hook shank."
If the Golden a Ratio applies to this aspect of an insect's wing location represented on a hook shank.....and if I have done the math correctly, it would fall at the 62% mark.
I'm not talking about some Balancing reason, but strictly trying to imitate the appearance of the natural.

I was relating this post to Fibonacci's Number, which corresponds to 61% more or less...I use it a lot in cabinet-making, my other $$$$$ vice and semi-retirement it's supposed to make money hobby.
I'd like to see a good side-view (elevation, so to speak) of a given natural but it makes sense that the proportions apply, somehow.
