My job is: A hundred days on the side of the river, from the snow melt in early june, to the first snowfall early september!I've found and brought back a couple mayflies(117 of them) from the Mckenzie River in Labrador.

This to explain that I have barely no clue of the water temperature or the date I have caught this specimen. (Note that the two front legs were ''lost'' during manipulation after some pictures)

If you need zoom or other angle let me know!

Thanks for your help guys!

Hi Jean-Philip-

I believe this female imago to be of genus Leucrocuta.
