Male Cinygmula ramaleyi (Small Western Gordon Quill) Mayfly Spinner Pictures

 This one was preserved in ethanol and partially dissected, so it doesn't have its natural wild coloration, and it's missing some appendages. I'm posting it for identification purposes.

This mayfly was collected from Mystery Creek #186 on September 4th, 2015 and added to Troutnut.com on October 27th, 2015.

Low-quality shot of the whole ventral view before I got the camera working properly.  Male Cinygmula ramaleyi (Small Western Gordon Quill) Mayfly Spinner from Mystery Creek #186 in Alaska

Claspers were removed for a clearer view of the genitalia, a key identifying characteristic in this genus.  Male Cinygmula ramaleyi (Small Western Gordon Quill) Mayfly Spinner from Mystery Creek #186 in Alaska
