Probably Centroptilum
Hi margarethe-

This is a male subimago of family Baetidae. It appears to have single detached intercalary veins in the fore wing, and I believe that I am seeing a tiny narrow elongate hind wing, the tip of which sticks out ever so slightly into the space where the trailing edge of the fore wing intersects with the top of the abdomen. This would likely point to either genus Centroptilum or genus Procloeon, and (to the best of my knowledge) there are only records of the former from AZ.

Thank you
we don't see them often here
