Is This Diptera? - Leptophlebia

Is This Diptera? - Leptophlebia
Blountstown in Panhandle, Calhoun County, Florida, USA

Size: 8mm
I'm beginning to think this is not Diptera. 4 of these swarming in front of my car. 8mm size excludes the legs and rear projections (what are these called?). Male I think due to what appear to be claspers. Can't see halteres that I can identify. Whatcha think? Thanks.

Moved from Mayflies.

Hi Travis-

I believe this male imago to be of genus Leptophlebia.

Moved for expert attention
Moved from ID Request.

Looks to be a mayfly species.

Is This Dipter
Wait a minute... This guys has two pairs of wings. So not Diptera. ID not critical to me. But would be nice. Thanks.
