Hi Wildlife Ranger, It looks

Hi Wildlife Ranger,
It looks more like an Ecdyonurus species. E.torrentis perhaps, the Brook Dun? Distinctive wing markings. E. venosus is very similar but I dont know about distributions.

-Possibility of Rithrogena

-Possibility of Rithrogena sp. here also? Rithrogena germanica (the March Brown) once thought to be much more widespreasd due to the misidentification of the very similar Ecdyonurus venosus. I think it might match Ecdyonurus better going by illustrations in Greenhalgh and Ovenden 2007, but a more experienced opinion is needed.
