Posts: 12Hi All- found this bug on my car today after a very productive day out on the Big Flatbrook River in Northwestern NJ. Picture not as focused as I’d like but I’m hoping someone can help me Identify this Mayfly??
Thanks

Hi Jersey Boy-

Focus of photo notwithstanding, I believe this male imago to likely be Maccaffertium ithaca.
