Moved from Rhithrogena.

Rhithrogena brunneotincta
looks to be the final placement.

Heptageniidae: Rhithrogena sp.
A beautifully marked species. This is a new species for us, not R. jejeuna as I had originally thought. Much too big, and very strikingly colored for most Rhithrogena. Perhaps R. gaspeensis, whose larva has never been described.

Great Images, Tom!
Who would ever think there could be so many Mayfly species?

 
I just scratched the surface
I'm sure there are tons more mayflies than what I've seen. If it wasn't for Don identifying them, I wouldn't have gone after them. Jim, thanks for the compliment.
