Found this guy in a small Lehigh Valley stream that I think has some spring influence. In the Hatches II book, I think I can match it to the Maccaffertium rubrum ( stenonema in the book). Can anyone confirm this and tell me anything about these guys? Thanks.

Well, there is no maccaffertium rubrum species. What was previously stenenoma rubrum is now classified as part of maccafertium modestum.

I suck at ID'ing nymphs, but looks like a reasonable guess.

Thanks guys. I knew that they had revised the stenonema to maccerffertium, but i didn't realize rubrum had become modestum. I'll research that avenue further. Thanks again.

My guess would be Ephemerella subvaria (Hendrickson). I wouldn't expect to see a lot of these in the Lehigh Valley but you never know. What suggests a subvaria in my view is the faint colored band in the back half of the abdomen.

But it really beats me.
