Hise's Epeorus Stoneclinger Nymph. Epeorus nymphs are dark-hued clingers that are easily distinguished by their two tails, a physical characteristic shared by no other mayfly nymph. Many people confuse Epeorus nymphs with another mayfly clinger, the Pale Evening Dun. This confusion arises from the fact that the latter has a fly named after it while the former lacks that honor. This confusion is easily resolved: simply look at the tails of the nymphs (two for Epeorus) and any uncertainties will be resolved.
Epeorus nymphs, like all mayfly clingers, are well-adapted to their fast-water environment. Their body, head, and legs are all flattened to hug the rock and minimize the force of the current pushing on them.
