Moved from Mayflies.

This is a male Hexagenia imago.

Possibly Hexagenia?

and image linked from there. Looking at the illustrations, it looks like freshly emerged individuals (subimagos?, e.g., your photo?) of this genus are a golden-brown. I think full imagos may be much darker, e.g., my photo. A hypothesis.
