Could this be a stream mayfly in the genus Stenacron? Is it a male or female? Are there any other angles that would help with id? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

Moved from Stenacron.
Thanks, Mack!

Stenacron 4 sure
This one is a (Stenacron interpunctatum / conjunctum) ♂


good call
Moved from Mayflies.

for confirming id and letting me know that it's a male. I really appreciate your help!

I found one of these on my pant leg, it crawled up onto my hand, I figured it was some sort of mayfly, of course I had NO CAMERa nearby, but it was the cutest bug! huge yellow eyes and all..

They are adorable :)
And apparently friendly, too! Sorry you didn't have your camera with you, but I'm glad you made a new friend!
