Arthroplea bipunctata?

Arthroplea bipunctata?
southern Adirondack Mts., Saratoga County, New York, USA
May 14, 2020
Time 4:16 p.m., Temp ~68 ⁰F. A mayfly resting on a shaded car hood. After reading the discussions on appropriate BG submissions from Massachusetts, I wonder: “Is this Arthroplea bipunctata?”

Moved from Mayflies.

Hi Ed-

Not Arthroplea bipunctata, which would have 2 tails in its winged lifestages. Based on the 3 tails in combination with the hind wing's (apparent) rounded costal angulation, I believe it is probably of family Leptophlebiidae.
