Hi Paul-

I believe this male imago to be Leptophlebia nebulosa.
Best regards,

Pretty. I've never seen these. Love the dark edge on the wing.

Well now that's different! Bi-colored wings on a mayfly! Thanks for posting, nice photos!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
