Palingenia longicaudaAdd to Cart Download
Just three hours after they hatched from the water and moulted into a mature animal, the male long-tailed mayflies (Palingenia longicauda) perish. During theit aquatic larval stages they gathered enough energy to power this short airborne life with the single aim of reproduction. Flying long-tailed mayflies have no mouth opening and no guts. The dead animals slowly float downstream, sometimes congregating into flower-like clusters. Tisza blooming (Tiszavirágzás). It is when millions of long-tailed mayflies (Palingenia longicauda) are rising in huge clouds, reproduce, and perish, all in just a few hours.
