Siphloplecton - female

Siphloplecton - Female
Sanbornville, Carroll County, New Hampshire, USA
May 6, 2015

Moved from Mayflies.

Hi metrioptera-

Although I share your belief that this female imago is of genus Siphloplecton, given the absence of a dark cloud at its wing base, which character I am not certain whether or not females share, it may or may not be S. basale.

It was found at the same locality as these , if that helps. What other species in the genus would be possibilities?

Other species possibility
To the best of my knowledge, the only species reported to have a NH distribution is S. basale. However, other possibilities should probably include (at least) S. costalense, which is reported to have (NJ, MD, VA, NC) distribution distribution.
