The larger fly had 2 long tails and one very short tail (almost a stub) in between the longer ones. The smaller one had 2 tails. Warmwater river (Little River) in the Piedmont of North Carolina. ID help? Thank you.

Hi Jonathan-

I believe those mayfly subimagoes are both of genus Hexagenia. The larger one is a female, and the smaller one is a male.
Best regards,
