Diagnostic Characteristics
Callibaetis fluctuans and Callibaetis pictus can often co-occur. Larvae of C. fluctuans can be differentiated from those of C. pallidus, C. pictus, and C. ferrugineus by having the ventral lamellae of gills 3-6 narrowly joined to the dorsal lamella. Larvae of C. pictus are differentiated from those of C. ferrugineus and C. pallidus by the absence of robust setae on the tibiae and tarsi.
