Closeup insects by Troutnut from the East Branch of the Delaware River and Miscellaneous New York in New York

Male Nixe inconspicua Mayfly DunMale Nixe inconspicua  Mayfly Dun View 13 PicturesThis pretty little dun was part of a sparse midsummer evening hatch on a large Catskill river.

I could not identify it by following a species key step by step, but I tentatively keyed it to the genus Nixe, and based on distribution maps and physical descriptions the most likely species is Nixe inconspicua.
