Ephemeroptera

Reconstruction of Protereisma permianum, from here.


Belongs within: Pterygota.
Contains: Furcatergalia, Pisciformia.

The Ephemeroptera include the mayflies, a group of insects that spend the greater part of their life cycle as aquatic nymphs (called naiads), with the emergent stage of their life-cycle (including two instars, the sub-adult subimago and the fully mature imago) being non-feeding and short-lived.

Synapomorphies (from Grimaldi & Engel 2005): Costal brace present at base of forewing; anal region in hind wing reduced; juveniles as aquatic naiads, with lateral abdominal gills and three caudal filaments.
