Male Cinygmula (Dark Red Quills) Mayfly Spinner
I'm unsure of the ID on this one; keys put it closest to Cinygmula reticulata, but I'm very doubtful of the species and not positive on the genus. Epeorus is another possibility, but I don't know which species it would be.

This one was collected in association with a female dun probably of a different family.
Female Ephemerellidae (Hendricksons, Sulphurs, PMDs, BWOs) Mayfly Dun
This one was collected in association with a male spinner, but they appear to be different families.
