I'm by far no expert in bugs and such, but this doesn't look like a QG-at least the ones I've seen in NCPA. Maybe a red quill?

I didn't see that little third wisp when it was on my thumb, pretty sure it had two wide splayed tails, not quite a spinner but dangerously close. That could be the back of the leg in the close-up.

OK, this frustrates me. It looks like a #16 rusty spinner. What more do we need to know? In other words: Quis magis operor nos postulo scio

I learned the latin names for shrubbery as a lad and it turned me off of the proper pursuit of piscatorial pronouns, so I just threw a size 12 brown biot body with light dun wing dry and called it a day. Apparently my thumb is bigger than you give credit for, when I'm done tying cicadas or I start my friday night beer binge, whichever comes first, I'll post some additional views of the quill and the predator that was dining on them.

What is the extra work involved with calling it a Ep. subvaria female imago?
A rusty spinner would be a great imitation
But, this is supposed to be a Hatch and Entomology Forum, so the answers provided and the disputes that followed should suffice.

Alright done tying and half way through the binge, done my first, but I'm not here to debate, I just like fish and bugs. And Ry, I practice catch and release bugging, I put that male quill on a bush streamside.

Sorry, I was just having fun. It probably does have a proper latin name.

Never be sorry for having fun, there's not fun in the world as it is.
