No Litobrancha
Looking at the species description of Litobrancha recurvata (as Hexagenia) in Burks (1953), my identification was not correct. This specimen is from the genus Hexagenia.

Mayfly
Ephemeridae. With the dark front legs, I am guessing Litobrancha recurvata. Unfortunately, being from the Midwest, I am not very familiar with that species -- I've only seen one specimen of it.

 
Ephemeridae
Thanks, I've moved it to the family page for now. If someone else agrees with the species, I'll move it again.

Thanks, I've moved it to the family page for now, until someone confirms the ID.
