Mayfly

A large insect that appears in June and is responsible for lots of hectic activity and high prices in Hampshire. The reason it is called Mayfly - and not Junefly - is because the name pre-dates a change in the Calendar. According to some authorities "mayfly" is name given the entire group of upwinged (ephemerid) insects. Useful knowledge if you want to disrupt a flow of energy-sapping conversation...
