Female Cinygmula (Dark Red Quills) Mayfly Spinner
This female was collected from the same spinner cloud as this male.
Male Cinygmula (Dark Red Quills) Mayfly Spinner
This male was collected from the same cloud of spinners as this female and is probably the same species. I'm tentatively calling them both Cinygmula for now, but I'm really not sure about that ID yet.
