Hex Mayflies
Hexagenia limbata

The famous nocturnal Hex hatch of the Midwest (and a few other lucky locations) stirs to the surface mythically large Brown Trout that only touch streamers for the rest of the year.

The identification of this specimen is not positive because some of the key characteristics conflict. The uniform amber tint of the wings and the rusty-colored mid-ventral markings on some of the abdominal sternites point to Cinygmula uniformis, but I could not locate the small ventral subapical spines on the penes that are supposed to also diagnose that species (the ones visible in the pictures aren't the ones I'm talking about). If I prioritize that characteristics, this would probably be Cinygmula mimus, but then the wing and sternite shading/markings are wrong.
