Visitor at moth light
This little guy was found in the stream and was extremely difficult to photograph. It was moving quickly but I was able to identify 2 tails at the end of its body.
Found crawling on my backpack. It was carrying a load of mites.
Small black stone flies on the upper deerfield in MA. I know these as the little black winter stone, but I assume that common name covers many different late winter stoneflies.
Found on top of my pack in Tararua Forest Park on an alluvial terrace covered in tree ferns beside a river.
Small stonefly about 12mm long, found on plant stem in garden. The nearest suitable river is about half a kilometre away, so presumably flew at least that distance to get here.
Seen on feijoa vines.
approx. 2 cm
Large stonefly on sedge leaf beside stream. Not sure if colour is normal, a variant or if it might be recently emerged.
Plecoptera: Stenoperla prasina - nymph
retrieved from the stomach of a brown trout
Under rock in stream. I presume a mayfly larvae or similar?
On a Libertia leaf, beside the Mahurangi River (leaf no more than 10mm wide)
Is the Leith Dirty or Healthy survey. Identified by Christoph Matthaei.
A young stonefly larva.
1m wide creek with high vegetation on surrounding banks and very little water flow. Water was moderately clear but after disturbance the muddy bottom made murky water.
