Phantom Crane Fly - Ptychoptera - female

Phantom Crane Fly - Ptychoptera - Female
Red Wing, Goodhue County, Minnesota, USA
June 23, 2007
I think that this is a Phantom Crane Fly - Ptychoptera genus. Any ideas as to species?

Yes, very similar images in the guide
here , but wait for a firm ID from Chen.

 
Yes, it is in the genus
Ptychoptera. It could be Ptychoptera metallica but could not be sure based on the female image. - Chen
