Moved from Stream Mayflies.

Heptageniidae
A heptageniid. Not sure of the western genera.

 
Ephemerellidae: Drunella
I believe this is a species of Drunella (Ephemerellidae). Not sure of the species, however. It could be D. doddsi, but it isn't possible to tell without a ventral view of the abdomen.
