Female Leptophlebia (Black Quills and Blue Quills) Mayfly Spinner Pictures

 I collected this specimen along with a female dun of the same species. Unfortunately it's not in very good shape.

After poking at it for a while under a microscope with a good scientific key in hand, I'm pretty sure this is either Leptophlebia cupida or Leptophlebia nebulosa. I can't tell which.

This mayfly was collected from Factory Brook on May 9th, 2007 and added to on May 18th, 2007.
