Greetings, I have a question for someone I found this one on my screen door last night and I have searched to try and come up with a name to put with it. I have tied flies for a few years but I've just duplicated patterns found in books or fly shops. I've never tried to identify the insects I have been tying, until now. By the way this mayfly is from Mid Missouri.

My guess is an Epeorus spinner. It is somewhat difficult to tell because some of the essential keys are missing. :-)

(Keys - I mean like number of tails.)

I believe there were 2 tails - right before my 3 year old needed to hold him...
