Correction: Not Controptilum -- Three-tailed Baetis

I made a mistake.  This Baetidae (small minnow) nymph that was featured in my previous entry today is not genus Centroptilum, it's genus Baetis -- the three-tailed version.

My previous photo of the labial palps was not sighted correctly.  I've just taken that photo again, and the labial palps are "rounded," not "truncate."  Take a look.

I'm not sure how I made this mistake, but I'm glad that I re-checked the head so I can post this correction.

Small minnow mayfly (Baetidae), genus Baetis, three-tailed version.  Buck Mt. Creek.
