I tentatively keyed it out to Rhithrogena morrisoni based on Needham's Biology of Mayflies, but I'm not completely sure. Roger's website lists Rhithrogena emerging in Washington in March and April, and this one was collected June 22nd. But this did come from high up in a mountain stream after a year of very heavy snowpack, so it might be that far behind schedule. It also looks very much like the specimen Bob Newell posted from eastern Washington. What do Roger and others think?
