This is the first mayfly of the season that I've observed. I'm hoping that someone might recognize it. Thanks! ;-)

Moved from Mayflies.


This is a male imago of family Leptophlebiidae and genus Leptophlebia.

Thank you, Roger!
Thanks for your help with this specimen! I'm pleased to know the family and genus! ;-)

for the future: to have your images noticed by the experts and get IDs faster, please post all caddis-, stone-, and mayfly pix to the respective order pages rather than to ID Request (refer to this forum thread for more recommendations – by no means official but followed by most editors and many contributors, which helps expedite identification process)

Moved from ID Request.

I'll be more attentive in the future. ;-)
