Mike-

The size (looks like about 4 mm based on the fingernail) and the apparent absence of hind wings cause me to suspect your mayfly may be a Plauditus male subimago.
Best regards,

thanks roger, bwo patterns were the closest i had but they werent producing. looking at the picture now a light bodied fly may have been better as the underside of the abdomen appears to be pretty light colored.
