Genus identification by Stefano Fenoglio
Creek access No. 1 on creek day with Junipers.
Plecoptera: Stenoperla prasina - Green Stonefly
50 shades of green
Need to check which species are likely around Austin in the spring.
Perla grandis or Perla marginata occur in that area (S. Fenoglio in litt.).
Saw lots of these walking on top of the snow. They are about 1/2" long.

On rocks near the river, the moulted exoskeletons of many of these little creatures were along the river back.
Didn't have a scale with me - total length including tail was ~1.5cm. Underside of rock in small stream. Last 4 photos were taken through a 10x hand lens.
On seat on the hut verandah.

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.
