Genus Cloeon

Cloeon paradieniense, Female subimago

These are relatively long lived mayflies as their eggs develop inside the female, rather than the more usual laying straight after mating in other species. This may improve their chances to disperse if their water supply dries up.  Identification and information thanks to Jeff Webb
