Sorry,
I know it would help to have a better photo, but this is the best I can do.
Surely someone can suggest an identification?

Hi Mack,

Although I also believe to be of family Baetidae, it doesn't have the hind wing profile I would associate with it being of genus Callibaetis.
Best regards,

Roger is right, IMO. Where & when was this fly collected? Size?

Hi Byron,

The latest photo is of a mayfly in an entirely different family from your first one. Do you have answers to my questions posted above?

Ento,
I know, but it also is up for identification. Pic. Is a mayfly from Argentina.
Given its speckled nature and that it is from a lake I thought Calibaetis. But it has large hind wings. Could it be related to the Calibaetis??
Thanks
