Mayfly - female Mayfly - female

Moved from Mayflies.

I believe it looks like a member of the Heptageniidae and related families, based upon wing venation. If you have retained it as a specimen, I would be glad to examine it (I am from Janesville).

no specimen
Sorry. I did not keep a specimen.

Missing Taxa
Hi Ilona-

Please forgive the extended amount of time it has taken for me to respond to your ID Request. It is clearly a female imago, and although it probably most closely resembles Pentagenia vittigera, I suspect it may be something else. So, I am parking it under missing taxa, at least until such time as I either have an epiphany, or some kind soul comes along and helps me out of my misery.
