Heptageniidae
Hi Clay-

I believe this female imago to be of family Heptageniidae, but unable to identify it to genus level.

 
Roger Thank you for the ID.
Roger
Thank you for the ID. Can I document what you need for a genus level ID?

 
Hmm
Don't I wish. Females can be next to impossible, as there are usually only detailed descriptions for male imagoes, and use of couplets to identify winged mayflies is generally an exercise in futility.
