Pretty sure it's R. dewsi. I'll look at specimens this weekend.

Nice find. I've taken them in several locations, all from large rocks in the middle of streams. Fast little buggers.

 
If they are fast...
then you must be faster because I had barely submitted these images when you had them properly identified and created a page for this new genus!
I will post an image of its wing venation next week and maybe a side view.
Thank you Brady!

 
Rupisalda
I've had a pinned specimen just sitting around until I figure out my camera and stacking software. Your photos are better than mine would have been!
