The Specimen

Baetidae (Blue-Winged Olives) Mayfly SpinnerBaetidae (Blue-Winged Olives) Mayfly Spinner View 12 PicturesThis species is probably in Centroptilum, Cloeon, or Procloeon. I captured this spinner on the same night as a dun which is probably of the same species.

I can't follow the key in Merritt & Cummins very far since it's not a male spinner. The sharp costal process could be a good hint. Anybody know which genus or species this is?
