We were all rookies at identification, and we learn as we go from others with knowledge. I want you to know that it is my pleasure to click "AGREE" with you're ID, I love people trying there best to get it right. Also I do see your thank you's but do to me doing 30-200 ID's most nights, I just don't have time to respond, but know I see it, and apriciate your thank you's.

If I moved your sample from your [genus/species] pick back to genus it is because there is not enough evidence of species so it must return to genus or even back to family. I have great respect for those that try this ID process.

Attention to members information you should know; The only away to be 100% sure of an ID is if someone like myself handles the sample and microscopically identifies it to species and or synonym. I have been handling Ephemeroptera daily since 2010 and I am personally connected to all the world authorities to help me if need. Identification by photo is problematic for many reasons, therefor latitude must always be considered. If you need help, email me.


Currently I am writing a revision paper for the genus Stenacron that addresses the interpunctatum complex. The biosystematics paper is also underway for the genus Leucrocuta 2025. As it stands there are no true larva descriptions across the Leucrocuta genus.
