Nemouridae

provided by wikipedia EN

The Nemouridae are a family of stoneflies containing more than 700 described species, occurring primarily in the Holarctic region.[1][2] Members of this family are commonly known as spring stoneflies or brown stoneflies. Fly fishermen often refer to these insects as tiny winter blacks.

Although these insects use a wide range of flowing-water habitats, they tend to be most prevalent in smaller streams. The nymphs are distinctive, being broad-bodied and bristly with divergent wing pads.
