Megaleuctra revision
The revision has been published (1). I'm not sure we'll be able to put a species ID on this specimen as it appears two species are possible in Washington and the females are presently inseparable. I'll try to find some time to see if I can tease out anything with the distribution.

Moved from Stoneflies.

Very nice! There is a revision for the genus due out any day now. I will revisit these photos when it does to see if I can put a species name on them for you. I have several photos (although none as good as these) of a local species that I've been holding off posting so as not to scoop the authors on a new record.
