Female Hexagenia limbata (Hex) Mayfly Spinner Pictures

I found this Hexagenia limbata spinner on a gas station in upstate New York, not a region known for heavy hatches of this species.

This mayfly was collected from Gas station in Whitney Point, NY in New York on July 13th, 2005 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on April 14th, 2006.
