This mayfly was collected from the Gulkana River on July 17th, 2011 and added to Troutnut.com on July 20th, 2011.
I took this picture a few minutes after collecting this dun on the stream, to see if the color would be the same as when I photographed him hours later at home.
An on-stream picture.

I'm very confused by the photo next to the ruler for a couple of reasons. It appears that your photo of this doddsii sub-imago puts it at just over an inch from head to end of the body (tails not included) which is around 25-30mm. But, you stated in some text related to D. grandis that the adult body length was around 13mm - aren't grandis over an inch? Also, my dry fly hooks (tmc 100 #10) are around 1/2 inch (12mm) from back of the eye to the bend, whereas the one in the photo next to the ruler is an inch long.
So, couple of questions here: when you say body length are you referring to the abdomen (sans thorax / head)?
And, what gives with your hook length / ruler in the photos? What hooks are those?
