Stoneflies (Plecoptera)

Orange-striped Stonefly (Perlodes mortoni) (S Orridge)

Weak-flying or flightless insects with soft, flattened bodies, and often with two long ‘tails’. Wings folded flat over body or wrapped around it at rest. Essentially aquatic insects, developing in and remaining close to water. Young are nymphs, with only partial metamorphosis and no pupal stage.
