The Specimen

Drunella flavilinea (Flav) Mayfly DunDrunella flavilinea (Flav) Mayfly Dun View 6 PicturesI can't be certain of the ID of this female dun, but I'm calling it Drunella flavilinea for three reasons: 1) the known abundance of "flavs" on the Henry's Fork, 2) clear differences in coloration from my confirmed specimens of Drunella coloradensis, which is the main lookalike, and 3) the habitat (a sizable river in a wide mountain valley, rather than a small, high-altitude stream) suggests it's not coloradensis.
Collected July 31, 2020 from the Henry's Fork of the Snake River in Idaho

Welcome to a great forum, and I pm'd you on some Flav resources. Not a familiar fly (local to MI, anyway) so far as I know...
