Emerging Mayfly climbing stem

Emerging Mayfly climbing stem

Mayflies are aquatic insects, the naiads or nymphs live on the bottoms of rivers. Thy are unusual in that they have 2 adult stages in their lifecycle. When the time comes the nymphs moult into winged intermediate adult stage (called a subimago) and emerge from the water, often by climbing using the stems of aquatic plants as in this image. They then undergo a final moult into the breeding adult (or imago). There are 51 species of mayfly found in the British Isles, and over 3,000 worldwide. I'm not exactly sure which species this one is; it could be the March brown mayfly (Rhithrogena germanica, famous for copies being one of the most popular artificial flies used for fly fishing) or the similar and more widespread late March brown or false March brown (Ecdyonurus venosus).
