Small (size 20) brown body. clear wings, obvious hind wings, 3 tails. Not sure if this is the same species as another observation made on same day. The other seemed to have a somewhat darker body, but that may be variation within the species.

May have seen a few duns also, but not sure about that.

Saw a very few duns flying above water.

This was the lightest hatch I've seen of these for some time. This may be a factor of the weather. Thunderstorm, heavy downpour from about 6 - 7 PM.

Small, yellow body, light grey wings, 3 tails.

Apart from the insects, I heard some of the quacking-type katydids (or cicadas?) that have ben around of late. These were heard where I was fishing, and also back at the car by route 9. Also heard the buzzing type of katydids/cicadas? by route 9. Did not hear the whippoorwill, which in recent weeks had been calling a lot near dark at this location.

Ate a few blueberries on the way to the stream. These are about done - there'd been a pretty decent crop 2-3 weeks ago.

Brownish olive color body, clear wings. Couldn't see how many tails there were. This looks much like the Serratella serratoides I collected from the same general location, same river on July 30th, but I didn't keep this one, and didn't get a close enough look at key characters (small dark spots on underside of abdomen) to be able to say for certain.

One thing I've noticed about these when on the wing - the bodies have a faint pink or salmon tinge. I think this may be because of the somewhat darker, more orange color in the thorax, whereas the abdomen has a more yellow, 'sulphur' color.

Small (size 20), orange-yellow body (more orange on the thorax). although it looks like there are 2 tails from the images, there are actually 3 - one was broken off. On at least one of the photos, you can see where the 3rd tail should be coming from.

After consulting with entomologist/angler friend Mike Cole, I've decided this is Serratella serratoides. Brown body, small (size 20, possibly 18) 3 striped tails, clear wings, obvious hind wing. Small dark spots on underside of abdomen are diagnostic.
