I noticed there were no stoneflies included yet in CNM, so when I found this one today on my camera strap after trudging through Blundells Flat I thought I'd get a picture of it. I had to put it in a specimen jar to keep it from flying off, so not a great photo.

Hi Harvey, I'll have to leave it as Plecoptera sp., as I don't know stoneflies. The little research I did seems to indicate that wing venation has to be looked at. But good to get a representative of the order up on the site!
