ID Comment

Hi Phil, I think you are correct but the name has changed to Perlodes mortoni, not sure what difference that makes though. Chris.

Thanks Chris - so many

Thanks Chris - so many species are in a constant state of flux often through DNA analysis. If you wish to correct the scientific name I'll agree with you. I felt fairly happy about going to species level with this photo because of the size and wings.

Your ID

Phil it's your ID, I wouldn't dream of taking it from you. I'm not sure what difference it will make but someone might correct it. Chris.

The Riverfly Recording Schemes are currently very interested in getting hold of specimens of these beasties to help clarify the species status. You can find out more here http://www.riverflies.org/orange-striped-stonefly-survey-0
