Mayflies live as nymphs for 3 months to 2 years, depending on the species. When they're mature, the entire generation emerges from the stream as adults, often within the span of a couple weeks. They emerge as "duns," an immature winged adult stage, and molt within a day or two into "spinners," the mature adults.
