Stonefly? - Leuctra

Stonefly? - Leuctra

I.D., is this a Leuctra stonefly? Species? Thank you for the help.

Moved from ID Request.

Lloyd Gonzales comment:
This is surely Leuctridae and probably Leuctra. Although the collection date narrows the possibilities, a confident species ID would probably require a close-up of the male terminalia.

Thank you gentlemen!!! I'll see if I can get a specimen in hand.


simple dorsal views
I see that if this is Leuctra, a simple dorsal view will not help for species. Animal flew off after this photo.
