Perlesta

Perlesta
Marlton, Burlington County, New Jersey, USA

Size: Maybe around 11 mm?
Came to the light at night. I believe that the ID is correct based on other images already in the guide, please let me know if I am wrong.

Perlesta Perlesta

Moved
Moved from Perlesta placida.

Could be...
Don Chandler's Perlesta n. sp. (here) or one of the many look-alikes in this genus. Placement at genus is probably best.

Moved
Moved from Isoperla.

Well...
if you'll click on several of the pictures under the Perlesta placida heading in the Perlidae you can get a sense of the confusion that sometimes occurs between some perlodids and small perlids. I believe that this is probably P. placida.

 
Thanks!
Sorry about that. I appreciate the help.
