Very weird bug - Paragnetina media
Judge C. R. Magney State Park, Cook County, Minnesota, USA
June 28, 2008
Size: ~1 inch
Seen on bridge over quickly flowing river.

Moved from Common Stoneflies.

Paragnetina media. See comments here.

I believe this is a member of the Perlidae.

a stonefly adult [fam. Perlodidae?]
nymphs are a major component of stream communities and prey on invertebrates or [in small stoneflies] various organic stuff
