please help ID, thanks!

Moved from Mayflies.

Hi David-

This is a Leptophlebia male imago. Mayfly body length is measured from the front of the head to the end of the abdomen, and does not include the length of the tails. As such, it is probably more like ~10 mm in length.

Roger, you are correct. The length of this insect, head to end of abdomen was about 10 mm
