Winged insect with two tails; brownish; size of a nailhead
I'm guessing this is some type of mosquito.
Based on the compound eyes and the 9-10 th tergite coloring It suggest to me this is (Baetis tricaudatus). Having two tails makes me very sure on this ID.
Thank you, Mandy.
Looks like a mayfly (order Ephemeroptera). I found a similar one last week. No idea what genus or species, though!http://bugguide.net/node/view/78/bgpage
