  • Imagos are extremely short lived and do not feed; nyphs allocate to reproduction buffer and have mature eggs (ref: Sold1979)
  • Estimates of the number of instars in ephemeropterans vary between 10 and 50; most are in the range 15-25 (ref: Brit1982, what_when_how)


  • Life span (and h_a) relates to imago
