ES3-Blue --- light hendrickson

At first glance I called this one Ephemerella excrucians based on
color but the size is to big. HUMmm it has the spot on the 10th tergite.

Notice the dorsal tubercles? Excrucians doesn't have those. Neither does invaria. Both are also smaller as well. The exception is rotunda. It can be as large as subvaria (or even larger) and also has tubercles, but they are smaller and not sharp; like little nubs that can be hard to see. Remember that rotunda = invaria now. Ditto this info for your other submittals.

Gotta I wondered about that guy being so light. My invaria / rotunda tends to be very dark. It is a immature sample and you know how big that wrench in the spokes is. :-)
