Unfortunately, I don't remember the size.

Beautiful Stonefly
From the markings on this evacuated shuck, it is most likely Paragnetina immarginata. Although the markings on other large perlids can be very similar, these seem to match immarginata perfectly. (BTW, "beautiful stone" is the Stark, et al. nickname for this species.)

Truly a beautiful photo of a stonefly exuvia, likely of family Perlodidae. Do you have a ventral photo of it, or if you retained the exuvia, can you take a ventral photo of it? Also, if you retained it, a dorsal photo showing the head would be useful.

Only dorsal views
I'm afraid I only have dorsal views. I posted a closeup of the head for what it's worth.

 
Closeup of head
Peter-

Darn. The head isn't really visible in either photo. The anterior-most exuvial segment visible is the prothorax. Anyway, wonderful photo!

Head
At least I'll know to try to get a face-shot the next time.

Beautiful.
Beautiful image. That could win an award somewhere:-)

Plecoptera: Perlidae: Acroneuria sp
One of the large stoneflies. Caddisfly larvae never have tails (cerci).

Caddisfly?
Definately not an ode. I'm thinking it's a Zebra Caddisfly exuviae.
