Let's just say you were right. Based on the cast nymphal shuck, your specimen appears to be Dannella lita (previously classified as Timpanoga lita) or Dannella simplex (previously classified as Timpanoga simplex).

Were these photos taken in North Carolina? Was the emergence event, which under normal circumstances would be in June or July, perhaps artificially accelerated as a result of the water temperature in your aquarium?
Best regards,
Roger Rohrbeck
