Indeed thank you so much Martin for the id :)
and we were on that trip together ;-) hence the same spotting :)
the rocks there were just by the river and many but not all were white .

Polyneura refers to the nerve texture in the wings. Cheni would likely refer to China.
We've seen this one before http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/712...
What is it about white rocks?

This is one of my favorites of yours. Spring is coming here early and I can't wait to find my first insect and spider. I saw some Winter Stoneflies. They were the last insects I found and the first now.
