Can this mayfly be more specifically identified? Perhaps Hexagenia limbata? Thanks for any help you can give.

Thanks to both of you...
I appreciate your help.

2nd Opinion
Female Hexagenia limbata subimago.

It certainly looks to be a Hexagenia limbata subimago. And H.limbata is on the Kansas list (2000). However, I'm not an expert in Ephemeroptera, so I'd wait for a second opinion.
