Unknown Mayfly, newly emerged  - Callibaetis fluctuans

Unknown Mayfly, newly emerged - Callibaetis fluctuans
Windsor, Larimer County, Colorado, USA
August 18, 2014
Size: About .5" foot to wingtip
I nearly freaked from happiness when this little one hopped onto my finger and molted inches from my face! What I wouldn't give to have been able to film it. :)

The closest I can get in looking through the Guide is Leucrocuta jewetti. Can anyone confirm or refute?
