Intresting, never even heard of a black quill. I think it is a dun though not a spinner.

Well I guess your right. Thanks SF. Used to seeing the more greenish bodies to the baetis's.

Many maflies will darken up when they hit the spinner stage. A lot will turn a rust brown after they molt to the spinners. Hence "rusty" spinner. They also have a clear wing as Sandfly said, compared to a "dun" which has a blue/gray wing.

My first guess was BWO spinner, but I'm in no means in the same league as Sandfly in Entomology.

I concur. Not sure on the exact species, but Baetis genus fits best. Spinner. Part of the color confusion is that as anglers, we usually deal with duns in the Baetis genus, finding spinners is difficult.

What size was it? That'd lead to more confidence in the ID.

Finding spinners is difficult because many of the Baetis Genus dive to the bottom and lay eggs on the stream bottom. But the spinners do work, I suppose the males drop on the water.
