About 10-12 mm long.
Found next to big wheeling creek (Wheeling WV)
Thanks Jolly, Definitely some sort of ephemeropteran, it was not hatching in extremely large numbers that night (only saw between 30-40) but saw many hundred 2 nights earlier! If you can suggest a good key to adult mayflies I would love to learn to identify these with more precision.
