Black stonefly (Austroperla cyrene). Hauroko Burn, Dusky Track
There was a sitting pond of water sitting nearby the lake along the trial. I sat by the puddle looking into it for a bit of time. After careful looking, I found an insect. It was floating in the water and you could see the tails of it twitching. It had two long tails stemming from its behind. It was a brown color with a shiny tint to it. I identified it as a dragonfly nymph since I know that dragonflies are abundant in this area in spring. But after class on the 19th, I’m guessing it could be a stonefly, but I’m not sure.

Large (20mm or so?) olive-yellow-orange body, black eyes, dark head with markings. This female had an egg sac which dropped off during the photoshoot.
Surprised to see these out so late in the season.
