Description

I'm uploading a series of images of the alderfly I captured on 5/13/17 in the Pat Mayse WMA in Lamar County. Based on measurements of the netting, this insect has an overall length of about 14 mm; body length is about 11 mm. This was captured off of vegetation (probably buttonbush) at the edge of the small pond along FM 1499 just north of the Sanders Creek bridge.
I've been reviewing the literature on alderflies. Among five species which have been recorded in Texas (Locklin 2008), I think I can narrow this ID down to one of three, but I'm going to contact an alderfly expert to have him take a look. More details to follow.
