Moved from Mayflies.

Hi bbuggd-

Yes, I believe this female subimago to be of genus Hexagenia, either Hexagenia limbata or Hexagenia rigida, both of which are known to reside in Ontario, but require microscopic examination the male imago penes in order to differentiate from one another.

Moved from Hexagenia.

As noted on your previous submission... Please post all mayflies to Ephemeroptera. Further ID may be possible, but Roger, our mayfly expert, does not review images posted deeper in the Guide.

Thank you
My apologies! I just saw this. Will do.
