    Default name this one

    most of us have a thing for either identifying or discovering bugs. Found this guy near Auburn Al on Lake Martin. i know its some sort of mayfly but i have never seen one with this type of tail. it seemed to fly and move around well with it.

    We have Hex up here that are that big, but I'm no entomologist so I wouldn't be able to say for certain.

    Either a recently emerged subimago, male ephemerella litobrancha that still has some skin from emerging stuck to its tail.

    OR

    It's a genetic mutation, the foundation of evolution...will it survuve?

    Note the reverse evolutionary tail... pretty sure that's a Hexagenia ankylosaurus
