    Re: Mayflies for ID

    Are you obsessed with this species?




    On the contrary I don't even like them, I think they are rather ugly.

    If you truly fell it is vicarium than that's what it is RIGHT ???


    PS; this sample was taxonomically matched to Walker vicarium 1853

    That's OK 95% of people can't tell the difference and the fish sure as hell don't care.

    Boy no wonder most I know don't like to help others its is just not worth it. If you prefer I can do the same and not try to help ??????

    I am waiting for Simms to chime on this post and posit a truly disgusting picture for identification.

    Re: Mayflies for ID

    Stenacron here is one for you. I know what this is. I have only encountered this fly once in my 35 years + of fly fishing

    It was a back in the 80s when I was just starting out fly fishing. I was fishing in the northern Adirondacks. I did not know what it was at the time. I took one to the local fly shop. The shop owner’s eyes lit up when he saw it. He told me what it was and ask my father what stream we were on. My father told him. Little did I Know that it would be the last time that I would ever encounter this May fly again.

    These are not my pictures of the fly but I remember it like it was yesterday.

    I might be able to stump you on this one.

    THAT'S pudicum?

    That's not my fly.
    That fly has mottled wings
    The body color is dark, blacks and greys to mine's browns and yellows
    and this guy would be lucky to have tails 2x his body length...

    Re: Mayflies for ID

    Very nice.

    Yes you may just stump me fore sure


    To be totally honest I have never seen them before. I will take a stab at the genus though. Based on the larva gills, tails, and the very large hind wings in the adults they look like the genus
    Siphlonurus.

    Re: Mayflies for ID

    We though so also but it is not big enough to be a GD We were puzzled. At the time we had no idea the rare treat we were a witness to.

    It was a Siphlonisca Aerodromia

    Thank you for your unsolicited "help". Since you being so open-minded, the reason I have been busting your chops is because I also have extensive experience in aquatic insects and their ID, and it seems inconceivable that one can be so sure of their knowledge when viewing pictures that are not completely clear, focused or that otherwise provide the details necessary to make an unequivocal identification of a species. Genus, yes, species maybe.

    Furthermore, FF makes some very good points, yet you haven't offered any real proof that you are correct beyond "so and so, who is an expert says so, and so do I". I'm not trying to give you a hard time here, I just think that with all the shit that is on the web that is incorrect, one would think it would be wise to have a more open mind, particularly when it comes to photos taken in the field (an alpaca field, especially).

    Listen, I can hear a mosquito pissing from 100 yards away, and I can tell what sex it is. BUT I don't brag about it on NEFF.

    Anyway, the shit you post is interesting, but it ain't written in stone, and it ain't going to cure cancer, so relax, and stop acting like Rusty Spinner.

    Finally, I saw a mayfly that had three tails, dark slate wings, a funky gray body and big tits, but it had big eyes. So was it a male or female?

    BTW - If this site is too rough for you, you may want to try helping the guys on The Drake forums. They are much more docile than the bunch of miscreants that inhabit this site.
