Thanks for the pics of this genus Jason. I had sampled a creek that I live close to and had collected something that I thought was Siphloplecton, but afer seeing your photos it must be Ameletus.

Looks similar to me. It's amazing how the colorations can vary.

Nice pic Caleb. That's gotta be the same mayfly.

The real distinguishing characteristic is in the mouth parts, which can be verified on my specimen, but the markings are so similar that we've clearly got the same insect.

The thing that threw me was the three dark lines on the underside of the abdomen.
