This AIDGAP identification guide covers the 51 species of Ephemeroptera (mayflies) recorded in the British Isles.

This is a field guide to live speciments of both adults and larvae (nymphs). Two pictorial keys (one to adults and one to larvae) take identitification to family level, leading to further illustrated keys to individual species.

Detailed individual species accounts follow. These include distribution maps, habitat requirements, conservation status and notes on how the species may be separated from similar species.

AIDGAP produces simple and clearly written identification keys, aimed at non-specialist users from age 16+. The FSC is one of the UK's leading publishers of identification guides, ranging from easy to use fold-out charts through intermediate level AIDGAP guides, to specialist books such as the Synopses of the British Fauna and RES Handbooks.
