Neoperla - First PA Datapoint - Neoperla

Neoperla - First PA Datapoint - Neoperla
Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA
July 16, 2009
Size: 15mm
Black-lighted.

Moved
Moved from Common Stoneflies. There are two ocelli.

Probably...
Neoperla. Enlargement of your image seems to show only two ocelli close together (within the dark patch toward the rear of the head). The size and what can be seen of the wing venation also appear to be consistent with that genus.

 
Do you think
you are sure enough I could move it? Also, do you know what species it is?

 
If...
you can verify from the specimen that there are only two ocelli, then the genus ID should be reliable. There are about 6 species of Neoperla recorded for PA, and the information available in the photo will not allow for species ID.
