Paraleptophlebia
Hi Peter-

I believe this female imago to be of genus Paraleptophlebia debilis with a missing (or not visible in photo) 3rd tail.

 
3 tails
Hi Roger,

Thanks. I posted a 2nd photo showing that there are three tails.

 
Species ID
And through process of elimination, I was able to identify it to species level,

 
Wow!
Thank you!
