Larvae and adults of the species were distinguished from other Ephemera spp. by a apir of narrow and laterally oriented longitudinal stripses on the abodminal terga 7-9 . Larvae of the species adapted to cold water high mountain torrents(altitude 500-700m) where substrates were sand, gravel, and a large portion of pebbles and cobbles. Altitudinal adaptations between Korean Ephemera spp. were briefly discussed.
