I am not sure but I am thinking Female [ march brown ] Maccaffertium vicarium. I only think that mostly on size. I just finished slide mounting her and the wings are 15 mm. The date is good and the body is 13 mm.
I almost captured her in a 360 degree photo shoot. That's all the pictures I have of her that are worth while posting, so no ventral shot.

HaHa I had the same thought in mind as Feather and thought of posting the same thought. Now in my case though I have never thought that about my wife.
