Blue quill would be my guess also - given that size. Would have 3 tails

Blew it up large and adjusted the light and couldn't see any tails. My best guess is Blue Quill or Hendrickson. I'm leaning toward the latter because of where the hind wing falls in relation to the body.

I believe it's a female, but not sure. Eye's look relatively small, I see no claspers. It's a dun, that's for sure.

I'm getting good at this. I was able Id both. The march brown was a no brainer since it was one i needed help with. Determining it was a female, was a cinch now (at least for this one)

I found these today while fishing at Trough Creek State Park, I was hoping for some help identifying them. I'm new to PAFF and I have been browsing the Entomology forums and I was eager to learn some more. I was thinking it might be a gray drake or March Brown but I'm having a hard time Keying it out, some help would be awesome.

Wings look mottled and clear and the tails long and big eyesso I'd guess a male spinner. But thats all I get from the pic. Probably a March Brown Spinner. But with no scale its difficult. A Brown drake would be 3/4 to 1" long on the body. They are a mid may bug too but everything is early this year soooo. Who knows.

any more details on body size or whether the legs were barred? Hind wing size? Mothers maiden name?

OK better pic....March Brown Spinner. Male.

I just uploaded another and it was definitely around an inch long and the legs had dark bands on them from what I saw.

Awesome, thanks for the help!
