Cloeon dipterum
Hi Daniel-

Your mayfly female imago has been identified by both Lloyd Gonzales and Kurt Schirmer as Cloeon dipterum.

thank you
I appologise for the photo quality it wasn't dark enough for the auto matic flash to go off but dark enough for the picture to not turn out that great

Photo quality
No apology is necessary, Daniel. Use of Photoshop allowed me to introduce more light and bring out the color on a copy of your photo.

Best regards,
