Stonefly larva - Taeniopteryx burksi

Stonefly larva - Taeniopteryx burksi
Groton, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
February 21, 2009
Size: 10mm
I dip netted this from the Nashua River.
This one has antennae that are mostly dark, and dark legs. Is it a different species than this other one I found in the same location with bi-colored antennae and yellow legs?

These were easy to find today. It looks like they have a bit of variation in the color.

Taeniopteryx burksi
both of them. Common stream species at this time of year.
